The ALANA Network is pleased to announce that Allen Bruehl, Director of the Academic Support Center, is this year’s recipient of the ALANA Diversity Award.

The recipient of the ALANA Diversity Award is chosen by ALANA students for demonstrating sensitivity to diversity issues, a commitment to treating all students fairly, and incorporating different cultural perspectives into his or her work.

Allen Bruehl has been in his position at Assumption College for almost twenty years. He has been quoted, “The most satisfying part of my job is to experience students gaining confidence and enjoying the academic pursuit of knowledge.”

Allen was selected by the students because of his concern for their academic well being and his belief that every student regardless of their cultural background be given the opportunity to succeed at Assumption College and in their post graduate careers.

Congratulations, Allen Bruehl
