MSP Senior Leader Reception

At the end of the spring semester, MSP recognizes the accomplishments and contributions of graduating seniors at the annual Senior Reception. This is an event specifically designed to celebrate graduating students who have been members of a student organization advised by MSP (link to student orgs), and to acknowledge their contributions to and advancement of conversations about diversity and social justice at UGA. At this event, MSP also awards the LK Bates Medal to one student, one community member, and one faculty or staff member who has been a major contributor to MSP or to social justice at UGA.
