OHI Team Member Eunah Preston Earns Campus Community Award
One Health DEI grant recipient, Eunah Preston, recently earned a UC Davis Soaring to New Heights Individual Award. Soaring to New Heights dates back to the adoption of the UC Davis Principles of Community in 1990, signed by then-Chancellor Theodore L. Hullar and leaders of the ASUCD and Graduate Student Association, Academic Senate and Academic Staff Organization (forerunner of the Academic Federation), and Staff Assembly (Davis campus and UC Davis Medical Center).
The Principles of Community “acknowledge we are a diverse community composed of individuals of many faiths, cultures, ethnicities, races and orientations with many perspectives and abilities. It also recognizes that, to create an inclusive and intellectually vibrant community, we must understand and value both our individual differences and our common ground. They are a set of ideals and expectations to build and maintain a culture based on mutual respect and caring.” - Renetta Garrison Tull, vice chancellor, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
2022 Individual Award Winner: Eunah Preston
Eunah ("oo-nuh") Preston, One Health Institute (OHI) marketing and design specialist, serves the many centers, programs, and projects within the OHI. In addition to her main responsibilities, she channels her passion and efforts into transforming and advancing justice, equity, diversity and inclusion, or JEDI. Most recently she organized staff and graduate students to apply — successfully — for a $10,000 grant to curate a JEDI-focused science and conservation speaker series as well as professionally facilitated training for the more than 60 faculty, staff, students and other affiliates of the institute.
