Professor Leslie Culver recently received the Marcus Garvey Black Star Excellence Award from the University of Utah’s Black Cultural Center.

In collaboration with the Black Faculty and Staff Association, the Black Cultural Center honors Black faculty and staff for their work on campus and in the community with the Black Faculty and Staff Awards each Black History Month (February).

The Marcus Garvey Black Star Excellence Award is for new University of Utah faculty and staff who have stepped up to the plate and helped build and broadcast the University of Utah in a positive light.

Professor Leslie Culver joined the faculty at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law on July 1, 2020. Professor Culver is an experienced Professor of Legal Writing. As an avid lover of all forms of writing since her youth, Professor Culver—after years in law practice—found her calling in teaching law students to develop their legal writing, research, and oral advocacy skills through an elevated lens of identity formation. This focus on identity formation is fueled by her scholarly interest.
