Faculty Highlight: Danielle Cover Wins Faculty/Staff Award at Shepard Symposium on Social Justice


College of Law Professor Danielle Cover was recognized at the 2018 Shepard Symposium on Social Justice with the Faculty/Staff Award. The award recognizes an individual for their dedication and leadership in promoting equality, inclusion, and social justice in local, national and global contexts.

Professor Cover wins this award hot off the heels of the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Award, of which she was the recipient in the fall.

In addition to receiving the award, Professor Cover was one of the many presenters at the Symposium. Her presentation “Know Your Rights: Workplace Discrimination” (Presented through a transgender lens), tackled legal discrimination topics including expungement, name changes, workplace rights and discrimination, and domestic and sexual violence.

Professor Cover is the Faculty Director of the Civil Legal Services Clinic (CLSC) at the College of Law, where she tirelessly works with students to provide free legal services across a broad range of legal issues.

The importance of work that Professor Cover does in the clinical programs at the College of Law cannot be overstated. Not only does the clinic provide much needed legal services to under-served populations within the state of Wyoming, the representation of low-income and marginalized individuals has challenged law students engage in more inclusive dialogue addressing issues of social and environmental justice.

The College of Law is extremely proud of the work that Professor Cover has accomplished in her time as a faculty member at Wyoming, and is pleased to see her recognized through this much-deserved award.
