Supporting comments: "Beyond his leadership positions within DCGA, Campus and Residential Life and the Black Student Union, Darrin’s impact has been felt far beyond formal roles. As our community grapples with complex issues around diversity, Darrin has called for a critical examination of the ways in which we define community and the impact that has on our ability to include multiple and diverse student perspectives in our decision-making processes. His diligent work behind the scenes has helped to ensure that the campus is able to engage in meaningful dialogue. Those whom he has mentored will have big shoes to fill as our community continues the conversations Darrin helped to initiate."
