DBAN annually recognizes students for their contributions to the Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color (BIPOC) communities at 桃瘾社区 and beyond. 

The DBAN award committee accepts nominations of students and peers who have demonstrated activism, advocacy, and distinguished service to the BIPOC community on campus and/or beyond. The committee welcomes nominations by alums, faculty, staff, current students as well as self nominations.
