The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Administrator and Staff Award is sponsored by the NYU Administrative Management Council (AMC) and the Office of Global Inclusion, Diversity, and Strategic Innovation (OGI). The award is presented to one administrator and one union staff who embodies what it means to be inclusive and just with a proven history of respectfully serving their teammates at all levels. In addition, the recipients of this award demonstrate a commitment to enriching and serving their communities, as exemplified by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Current NYU administrators, staff, students, faculty, alumni, or other members of the NYU community may submit nominations. Award recipients are chosen by a selection committee of administrators and staff.

Award recipients will receive professional development support in the form of reimbursement. They will also be announced and celebrated during the NYU MLK Week University-Wide Event on February 8, 2024.
