Call for Nominations for the Elizabeth Coleman Visionary Leadership Award

Bennington College is pleased to invite nominations for the 2016 Elizabeth Coleman Visionary Leadership Award. This annual award, established in honor of Bennington’s ninth president, recognizes a living distinguished Bennington alumna/alumnus, faculty or staff member, or an individual from the larger Bennington community whose innovative and inspirational leadership is advancing civic and cultural life and improving the lives of others.

The selected individual will be an engaged citizen who has successfully demonstrated the willingness to step forward and take risks in order to solve problems and achieve results in the areas of education, government, the arts and sciences, or industry.

Established by parents of a Bennington alumna from the Class of 2000, the $5,000 award has no restrictions on how it may be used. The honoree will be announced in early 2016 and will be invited to campus to meet with current students, allowing them to connect with an exceptional leader who is affiliated with the College.

Nominations are being accepted for the 2016 award from September 15 to November 6, 2015. To submit a nomination, please fill out this online form.
