Joan Schumaker-Chadde’s body of work is a lot like Lake Superior: the list of attributes,
no matter how complete, can’t fully articulate its depth and breadth.
Chadde’s 25-year history of serving teachers and students across the state of Michigan
with original and impactful outreach has been recognized with the 2020 Michigan Tech Diversity Award.
About the Award
Established in 2014, Michigan Tech’s Diversity Award showcases Michigan Tech faculty
and staff who demonstrate exemplary commitment to initiatives that forward diversity
and inclusion. Their contributions come in many forms, including recruitment, retention,
teaching, research, multicultural programming, cultural competency and community outreach.
