2023: Amos N. Guiora, Professor —
S. J. Quinney College of Law
Professor Guiora is a shining example of community-engaged scholarship as his path-breaking research and writing on Bystanders and Enablers in sexual assaults has had far reaching impacts on survivors all over the world. He worked with Utah legislators Rep. Brian King and Sen. Kurt Bramble to introduce a bill that criminalized bystanders of sexual assault, which was eventually signed off by Governor Cox in March 2021.
One survivor said “Professor Guiora’s genuine care and concern aided in realizing my worth, therefore restoring my light. There are very few people in this world that will take the time to listen. Professor Guiora not only listened, he took initiative to create change.”
