Professor Bryan Carr was recently honored with the Dr. P. B. Poorman Award for Outstanding Achievement on Behalf of LGBTQ+ People.
The Universities of Wisconsin announced the 13 honorees of the 2023 Dr. P.B. Poorman Award for Outstanding Achievement on Behalf of LGBTQ+ People this past week, an annual honor given to LGBTQ+ people or their allies who have helped to create a safer and more inclusive climate for LGBTQ+ people. The award celebrates the memory and legacy of Dr. Paula B. Poorman, a highly regarded faculty member at UW-Whitewater dedicated to improving the lives of LGBTQ+ people.
This year marks the 15th anniversary of the founding of the Dr. P.B. Poorman Award. The recipients of the award were honored this past November 9, 2023, in Madison during a ceremony hosted by the Universities of Wisconsin. The awards ceremony and reception were held in conjunction with the Universities of Wisconsin presentation of the Outstanding Women of Color in Education Awards.
“Honorees are helping build a better experience for our students, faculty, and staff,” said Universities of Wisconsin President Jay Rothman. “This award recognizes their achievements in creating a safer and inclusive climate at our universities.”
