(L to R) College of Education Dean David Monk and Climate Enhancement Award recipient Rose Baker

The Climate Enhancement Award

The Climate Enhancement Award recognizes contributions to the pursuit of the College's diversity agenda. This year, the College of Education is proud to honor Rose Baker.

Rose, assistant professor of education, began her professional work at Penn State in the fall of 2006, and has since demonstrated an unwavering commitment to issues of diversity within the College of Education, and the University as a whole. Rose currently serves as co-chair of Penn State’s Commission for Women, an honorable appointment that requires numerous hours of volunteerism and countless hours of dedication. In addition, Rose serves on the Joint Commissions Committee, which supports collaborative efforts of all three President’s equity commission concerns, advocating for underrepresented constituents.

“Her commitment to diversity is unwavering as she strives to improve the work lives of women across the Penn State Community,” said Lisa German, associate dean, Collections, Information and Access Services, who serves on the Commission for Women with Baker. “The contributions Dr. Rose Baker has made to this University through work on the commission is selfless, of high quality, and is having an impact on students, staff, and faculty.”
