Bae Receives Donald R. Zander Alumni Award for Outstanding Student Leadership

Congratulations Seoyeon Bae for receiving the Donald R. Zander Alumni Award for Outstanding Student Leadership! This annual award is given to undergraduate students honoring their outstanding academic achievement, character, and leadership/service to the University of Minnesota. In her role as Marketing Communicator for the International Buddy Program (IBP), Bae was able to connect with other international students worldwide. Given the social distancing restrictions of the past year, Bae worked to create a welcoming community for all international students and enhance their online presence.  With the Multicultural Youth Advisory Board with NAMI, Culture Corps Project on East Asian international students' mental health, and Community Advisor at Lavender House, Bae focused on different marginalized identities on and off-campus.
