Professor Peggy Stevenson receives prestigious Innovation and Leadership Award from CSU Chancellor
Professor Margaret (Peggy) Stevenson has received a Faculty Innovation and Leadership Award from the CSU Chancellor's Office for her work as Director for the Record Clearance Project.
Stevenson created the Record Clearance Project in 2008; since 2011 it has been formalized into three courses in the Justice Studies Department. Under Stevenson's supervision, undergraduates gain hands-on experience in the legal system while changing lives of those in their community.
RCP has educated more than 11,000 community members on expungement law and employment rights of people with convictions, filed over 1,400 expungement petitions to court, and provided over 1,400 individual interviews to advise people of their next steps in clearing their records. RCP volunteers have delivered over 75,000 uncompensated hours of service.
Selected from 366 nominations, Stevenson was one of 26 recipients in the CSU system. Stevenson is redirecting her $5,000 award to help fund RCP.
