Daemen’s Assistant Director of Diversity and Inclusion Dasia Morman was recently named as an honoree for the Changemakers 30 Under 30 Awards. Presented by the Crews Group and S & J Foundation, the ninth annual ceremony will celebrate and honor some of Western New York’s most prolific and dynamic young professionals. Morman is being honored in the education category.
Since 2011, the Changemakers 30 Under 30 Awards has honored over 200 young professionals under the age of 30 who continue to make an impact in the community and in their respective areas of work. They will be honored at an event later this year.
Morman currently serves as the institution’s assistant director of diversity and inclusion. In this role, she is responsible for developing diverse and inclusive programs, overseeing heritage and cultural months with the goal of opening communication, and educating the college community.
“It was an honor to be nominated for the Changemakers 30 Under 30 Awards. It feels good to be recognized for the work that I do and the impact that it has on the community I serve. I never sit back and think about what I have accomplished at such a young age because I am always thinking about what I can do to get to the next level, what can I do to be better, so it feels amazing to just be honored and know that the community appreciates the work that I do,” said Morman.
Morman, a Buffalo native, earned her master’s degree from SUNY Buffalo State in higher education and student affairs administration. She has experience working with underrepresented and marginalized communities and is committed to ensuring that all students have a safe and supportive environment where they can thrive socially and intellectually.
