Awardees have been evaluated on the following criteria:

  • Acts as a leader in their field of expertise and reinforces practices that emphasize inclusion and equality
  • Invests in their personal, professional development through networking, mentoring, education, etc.

These awards were inspired by Joan Bixby, Florida Tech alumna and former university administrator. Bixby, who earned a Florida Tech master’s degree in contract and procurement management in 1975, started her university career as a development director in 1965, and remained an active member of the university community until her death in December 2011.
