Dr. Rodolfo AcuÑa Awarded MALDEF Lifetime achievement award


Dr. Rodolfo Acuña, Founder and Professor Emeritus of the Department of Chicano/a Studies was awarded the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund Lifetime Achievement Award at its 35th Annual MALDEF Awards Gala on Thursday, November 12, 2009. This award was the latest of many such honors bestowed upon Dr. Acuña throughout the country and throughout his career. Dr. Acuña was selected as one of the “100 Most Influential Educators of the 20th Century,” by Black Issues In Higher Education in part because of his scholar-activist approach.  Last year, Dr. Acuña was honored with the National Hispanic Institute, Lifetime Achievement Award, in Austin, Texas, 2008.

Congratulations Rudy!!
