The Office of the Provost is pleased to announce winners of the 2021 Think Big Leadership Awards.
“I am genuinely amazed at the creative, boundary-pushing and community-focused work happening all over our campus, particularly during a year of so much unrest and uncertainty,” said Provost and Executive Vice President Ben Vinson III. “I am so pleased that we can recognize such outstanding members of our community in this way.”
As Case Western Reserve charts the waters of its new reality, the North Star and Pathways of the Think Big strategic plan continue to guide the university. The university’s North Star states: Case Western Reserve is a high-impact research university that aspires to be a community where humanity, science and technology meet to create a just and thriving world. The Think Big Leadership Awards are meant to identify those who are helping to achieve this vision.
In mid-April, Provost Vinson asked the campus to identify teams or individuals who are pushing boundaries along each of four Pathways outlined in the university’s strategic plan. The campus community responded in force with nearly 100 individual and team nominations, representing more than 260 faculty, staff and students.
Winners were chosen by Think Big Pathway Leaders in conjunction with the Office of the Provost. They will be honored with an event at Harcourt House on October 5 hosted by incoming President Eric Kaler and Provost Vinson.
