Dr. Oliver W. Hill, Jr. Contemplative Justice In Action Award and Faculty Fellowship
The CMind Board of Directors is thrilled to launch the campaign for the Dr. Oliver W. Hill, Jr. Justice in Action Fund in support of the Dr. Oliver W. Hill, Jr. Contemplative Justice in Action Award and Faculty Fellowship that will annually recognize the efforts of a CMind community faculty member whose efforts in their scholarship, practice, and activism embody the intersectional embrace of social justice, radical love, and contemplative practice, honoring Dr. Hill’s vision of “transforming higher education to reflect contemplative values.”
Dr. Oliver W. Hill, Jr., was a longtime CMind board member, friend, mentor, and source of continual inspiration and hope. Professor and Chair of the Department of Psychology at Virginia State University, he worked for the continued success of students of color in STEM fields. His life was a celebration of the power of contemplative living: his decades of dedication to his practices of meditation and yoga, to the work of social and racial justice, and to the expansion and transformation of consciousness toward integrating our hearts and minds for a more loving world. We will always be inspired by his wisdom, compassion, and humor.
