Junior Malik Dent Receives Campus Life Award

Malik Dent

SESP third-year student Malik Dent is one of five recipients of the Campus Life Award for fall 2014. This award recognizes students who have significantly contributed to the improvement of the quality of student life at Northwestern.

Each quarter the Office of Student Engagement recognizes students who have improved the Northwestern community through program development, bridging cultural differences or engaging students in a more inclusive campus community.

Dent is being honored for his efforts in organizing two successful events on campus. He planned the For Members Only annual fall speaker event, which drew more than 500 students, staff and faculty to see Sybrina Fulton speak on campus. Fulton is the mother of Trayvon Martin, the unarmed 17-year-old shot and killed by George Zimmerman in Florida two years ago. For Members Only serves as Northwestern University's Black Student Alliance.

In addition, Dent was instrumental in planning Alpha Phi Alpha’s annual scholarship banquet as a major event that raised funds for scholarships. He and his committee were able to bring together more than 150 attendees for the event.

At SESP, Dent is a learning and organizational change major. He is also majoring in political science with a minor in business institutions.

Members of the Northwestern community may nominate a student for a Campus Life Award through the Office of Student Engagement website
