Dr. Boyd was the inaugural recipient of the Dixon-McFadden Award, and Pramuk is the second.

Pramuk was nominated for this award by Travis Imel, ’00 & G-’02, Dean of Student Affairs. 

The Dixon-McFadden Award is intended to recognize an individual who has been a trailblazer on campus as it relates to student conduct; an individual who has enhanced the lives of students by going above and beyond. The individual recognized with this award is not a new professional; rather, it is an individual who has demonstrated experience in leading and serving a campus community.

The award was named after St. John Dixon and James McFadden, two of the students who participated in the sit-in at the whites-only lunch counter at the Montgomery County (Alabama) courthouse in 1960 that led to the landmark 1961 Supreme Court case of Dixon v. Alabama State Board of Education. The Dixon case ended the in loco parentis relationship between colleges and their students, and established minimal due process rights for students at a state university under the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution. In effect, the Dixon case gave birth to the student conduct process at colleges and universities nationwide. 

Pramuk was accompanied to the ASCA conference by Amy Rousseau, ’06 & G-’13, Director; Kay Amos, ’85 & G-’98, Student Accountability Manager; and Travis Clevenger, ’07 & G-’09, Student Accountability Coordinator, all of the Office of Student Accountability and Restorative Practices.

The is the leading voice for student conduct in higher education. ASCA and its members are dedicated to upholding the integrity of the student conduct process, resulting in the ability to build safer educational communities and positively impact the higher education experience.
