The American Historical Association has awarded the 2022 Institutional Equity Award to the Department of History at Cal State LA.  The Institutional Equity Award is given to institutions that have achieved excellence in recruiting and retaining underrepresented racial and ethnic groups into the historical discipline.

The American Historical Association offers annual prizes honoring exceptional books, distinguished teaching and mentoring in the classroom, public history, and other historical projects. Since 1896, the Association has conferred over 1,000 awards. This year’s finalists were selected from a field of over 1,300 entries by nearly 150 dedicated prize committee members. The names, publications, and projects of those who received these awards are a catalog of the best work produced in the historical discipline.

“This is a national-level recognition of all the hard work of our students, staff, and faculty” said Dr. Choi Chatterjee, chair of the Department of History.  “I especially want to thank Dr. Mark Wild, our former chair, for initiating the process and providing the necessary documentation that led to our receiving the award.”
