Romero Human Rights Award

In 2000, the University of Dayton established the Romero Human Rights Award. The award commemorates the ministry and martyrdom of the slain Salvadoran Archbishop and honors an individual or organization whose work has contributed significantly to the alleviation of human suffering and injustice. The award itself, a bronze statue of Saint Romero, is an original piece sculpted by Emily Trick '00 and Brother Gary Marcinowski, S.M., of the University of Dayton's Department of Visual Arts.
