"I am truly honored to receive the JEDI-CCE award for my contributions to advancing the higher purposes of education -- transformative community engagement, teaching, research, learning, activism, leadership, and partnership. I've enjoyed every moment of my journey as a clinical law professor, scholar, leader, and community partner, and extend my sincere thanks [to] GW for all the support I've received. I am especially proud to be amongst a distinguished group of awardees committed to community-engaged and transformative education, scholarship, and leadership," said GW Law's Professor of Clinical Law Susan R. Jones.
