One of two undergraduate to receive a University Diversity Award, Frank Brady Gilliam, of Charlotte, is a first-year comparative literature major who spent his gap year volunteering as an English tutor and interning in small medical cinics in Thailand, Madagascar, Bolivia and Peru. At Carolina, Gilliam has been a Campus Y intern with global interests, including connecting Duke and UNC students involved in international projects. An LGTBQ activist, he has been a member of the LGBTQ Housing Community Board and conducted research in oral history and queer anthropology. Looking at all Gilliam has accomplished in just his first semester, his nominator said that, in "25 years of teaching college students, it is hard for me to imagine (or even remember) a more desrving candidate for the Diversity awards."
