Rutgers-Newark Chancellor Steven J. Diner has served with dedication and distinction in his nearly 10 years as the head of the Newark Campus. The community is stronger for his leadership. During his tenure, in addition to helping found the Institute for Ethical Leadership, the School of Public Affairs and Administration and the Division of Global Affairs, he led the construction of a residence hall in Newark and renovation of 1 Washington Park and promoted student engagement within the community and achieved substantial growth in student enrollment.
Chancellor Diner is the first honoree of the Steven J. Diner Ethical Leadership Award which is given annually to an individual who demonstrates a long-term commitment to strengthening civil society through ethical leadership. Chancellor Diner has supported the Institute's work from its inception and we recognized and honored him for his many accomplishments, for his commitment to the field of higher education, community engagement in the City of Newark and his ethical leadership. His values and ethical leadership are evident in all that he accomplished in his role as Chancellor of Rutgers-Newark. The Institute was fortunate to have him as a leader, as an example, and as a partner. As future leaders are recognized and receive this award, Chancellor Diner's legacy lives on.
In addition to recognition of Chancellor Diner, the annual awardee names a nonprofit organization in Newark that receives a monetary prize. This year Chancellor Diner chose Leadership Newark as this year's nonprofit recipient. The organization's mission is to connect and improve the network of community and civic leaders, while stimulating their collaborative efforts and thinking to enhance the community, as they each commit to build, strengthen and serve.
