PAGE EDUCATION FOUNDATION

In 1988, to mark his induction into the National Football League Hall of Fame, Alan Page and his wife Diane founded the Page Education Foundation (PEF). In the last 29 years, the foundation has awarded scholarships to more than 6,500 students of color pursuing their post-secondary education in Minnesota.  In exchange for financial support, recipients, known as Page Scholars, contribute to our community by mentoring young children in grades kindergarten through eighth. Through this interaction, Page Scholars develop leadership skills and the children they work with see these role models as examples of inspiration and hope.  To date, Page Scholars have volunteered over 420,000 hours.  For the 2016-17 academic year we have 518 Page Scholars who will be awarded $850,000 in Page Grants.

 

CLE:  ELIMINATION OF BIAS

To mark his retirement from the Minnesota Supreme Court in 2015, Page has launched an initiative, to build awareness of ethics and the elimination of bias in the law, matters that will shape our legal community now and in the future.

The 2017 program will focus on Gender Bias.

Her current volunteer activities include serving on the Board of Directors of Global Rights for Women, the Board of Directors of the Dakota Jazz Club & Restaurant in Minneapolis and its sister location, Vieux Carré, in St. Paul and the Advisory Board  of the Center for Law and Business at Mitchell Hamline School of Law.

Dr. Artika R. Tyner, Associate Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion and public policy/leadership professor at the University of St. Thomas, Civil Rights Attorney, and Page Scholar Alumna. Tyner received her B.A. from Hamline University. Due to her passion for advocating for social justice and educational policy reform, she decided to pursue graduate studies at the University of St. Thomas. She began her journey with law school, recognizing that the law is a language of power and therefore she sought to become well versed in it.

Subsequently, Tyner earned a Master of Public Policy and Leadership in order to gain tools for effecting social change through policy reform efforts. Later, she obtained a Doctorate in Leadership. Her doctoral studies provided her with key tools for serving in her community and promoting social justice.
