The Office of Child Development (OCD) has been awarded the Chancellor’s University Prize for Strategic, Inclusive and Diverse Excellence (UPSIDE) Award. The honor — formerly known as the Chancellor’s Affirmative Action Award — acknowledges university departments, units and programs that strive for excellence in diversity and inclusion.

Established in 1986, the Office of Child Development, a community engagement program of the School of Education, works to develop resources to improve the lives of children and families in key areas. Kathy W. Humphrey, Pitt’s senior vice chancellor for engagement and chief of staff, and Pamela Connelly, vice chancellor for diversity and inclusion, presented the award to OCD’s senior leadership.
