Larry Seno is Recipient of UO Martin Luther King, Jr. Award
On January 21, Oregon Law’s Assistant Dean of Admissions Larry Seno, Jr. received one of the University of Oregon’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Awards. Each year, the University of Oregon honors faculty and staff who represent and uphold the ideals supported by King, such as demonstrating moral courage, promoting social justice, and embodying a humanitarian spirit.
In an email message sent to law school faculty and staff, Dean Margie Paris noted that Assistant Dean Seno “has been a visionary in finding ways to increase diversity within the law school student body. He has worked to increase scholarship funding, initiated a fly-in program for diverse applicants, created a year-round minority outreach coordinator, has brought student representatives to recruiting events, and has been deeply involved in the Law School Admission Council. Moreover, he has been a hard-working member of the law school’s Diversity Committee and has contributed to the ways in which that group works to make the school welcoming to all.”
President Lariviere honored this year’s recipients during a reception in Gerlinger Alumni Lounge.
