Rose O’Toole Award

Will Hudson

The Rose O’Toole Staff Recognition Award is given annually to acknowledge outstanding achievements that have impact on institutional success and contribute significantly to the mission of Clarke University.

This year’s Clarke University Rose O’Toole Staff Recognition Award was presented to:

William Hudson
Director of Intercultural Programs & Engagement

Here is an excerpt from the nomination for this year’s recipient:

Will displays a strong commitment to student success and is greatly admired and respected for getting things done. As an example, he established Clarke’s Black Male Leadership Society to meet the needs of first generation, Black men who have traditionally experienced lower retention rates. The goal was to retain 50% of the first cohort of students in this program; through Will’s leadership, 90% of the membership was retained. He has been at the helm of many other initiatives including the Mary Jo Marketplace, orchestrating meals during Thanksgiving and Spring Break for students who are not able to travel home, investigating and implementing new public transportation methods for students and developing new programming. It is clear in the short time that Will has been at Clarke, he is a stellar example of living our Core Values.
