Recent graduate Christina Haggerty '10 received honorable mention from the Esther Kingston-Mann Student Achievement Awards at the sixth annual awards banquet held at UMass Boston on October 22nd. The awards "are intended to acknowledge the work of students who make a valuable contribution to diversity/inclusion scholarship." Haggerty was recognized for her paper entitled, "Human Trafficking As a Global Phenomenon: International and National Policy Proposals."
A global studies major, Haggerty submitted the work she originally produced as a candidate for Distinction in the Field at the College this past April. She worked with faculty advisor Associate Professor of Foreign Languages Arlyn Sanchez Silva, who also serves as faculty representative from Emmanuel College on the Esther Kingston-Mann awards committee.
The Kingston-Mann awards, initially funded through a Ford Foundation "opportunity grant," began in 2004 as a consortium of six New England colleges and universities. Today, participating campuses include Emmanuel College, Lesley University, Massasoit Community College, Rhode Island College, University of Massachusetts Boston, University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, University of Massachusetts Lowell, and University of New Hampshire.
