Peter V. Johnson, director of enrollment group special projects and special assistant to the dean of undergraduate admissions and financial aid, was honored on February 17 as a recipient of the Black Alumni Council’s 2016 Heritage Award. The award is given annually to Columbians who have “made significant contributions both to the University and the larger world, and [have] demonstrated a consistent dedication to the Black community.” In accepting the award, Johnson said, “My 33 years here have been ‘A Love Supreme. You have challenged me, taught me, supported me, proven to me that this is the best college in the world.”
