Michael Davis `84 Named Recipient of Heman Marion Sweatt Student Legacy Award
Michael Davis `84 received the 2014 Heman Marion Sweatt Student Legacy Award from the University of Texas at Austin.
Michael is the 2010 Greenhill School Distinguished Alumni winner. He currently serves as Director of Institutional Client Relationships at Calvert Investments.
The Heman Marion Sweatt Legacy Award honors alumni, faculty, staff, students and friends of the University of Texas at Austin who embody the life and legacy of Heman Marion Sweatt by breaking down barriers and challenging the status quo.
Michael received the Student Legacy Award for his efforts in establishing the Minority Information Center (MIC) on the university’s campus in 1988. The center provided critical support to minority students during a time when there was a great deal of strife on campus and low graduation rates for students of color. Davis, who was active in Student Government and the Black Student Alliance, spearheaded the effort to get resources and support for the MIC, which has since been renamed the Multicultural Engagement Center to reflect the center’s evolving role. It continues to operate today, some 25 years later.
