Hidden Heroes Award

Exemplify justice and reconciliation in their lives...

The CSJ Center for Reconciliation and Justice honors individuals and groups who exemplify justice and reconciliation in their lives.  Beginning in 2013, the CSJ Center honors faculty, staff, student and alumni through an award named "Hidden Heroes."  Each awardee will be honored through the telling of their story in a dramatic performance.  There is also a time for each recipient to be honored through the giving of an award and celebration with family, colleagues and friends at a reception in their honor.
