Cox and Frey Win Outstanding Service Awards
APRIL 23, 2008—Professor Prentiss Cox and Assistant Professor Barbara Frey have been chosen as recipients of the University of Minnesota's 2008 Outstanding Community Service Staff Award.
Cox served as an assistant attorney general and manager of the Consumer Enforcement Division in the Minnesota Attorney General's office before joining the Law School's Clinical Faculty. His work in the areas of predatory lending, fraud, foreclosure and mortgage issues has been a highly valued resource for the public during the recent mortgage crises nationwide.
Frey is an assistant professor at the Institute for Global Studies and is the Director of the Minnesota Human Rights Program. Frey's tireless efforts on the "Save Yar Campaign" for children's rights—and toward other human rights offenses in Sudan and Thailand—have been a catapult for both awareness and action.
The university's annual Outstanding Community Service Awards recognize faculty/staff members who have made important contributions to public service. Winners were honored at a banquet on April 22.
