About the award
For the first time in 2017, One Love recognized students and academic communities that demonstrated extraordinary commitment to expanding One Love at their schools. Each of the winners below galvanized their campuses by connecting with students, sports teams and administration to ensure everyone was creating a healthier community dedicated to understanding the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationship behaviors.
We’ll continue to recognize people each year who have gone above and beyond to ensure that their communities understand the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationship behaviors.
From workshops to campus activations, these 2017 Campus Award Winners have gone above and beyond to educate others about healthy relationships

The Community Award Winners took a holistic approach to bringing One Love to their campus communities
The One Love movement is most powerful when both students and administration are equally invested in shining a spotlight on the issue. Boston University exemplifies the impact that’s possible when this alignment happens. For that reason, in 2017 we honored this campus community where multiple leaders from different disciplines within the school system came forward to help advance One Love’s work.
Specifically, within the system, accolades are due to the following three leaders:
- Dean Kenneth Elmore – Associate Provost and Dean of Students, advocated for One Love at Boston University and Boston more broadly. Kenn is also a member of One Love’s National Advisory Council.
- Al Lattell – Director of Lacrosse Operations, was instrumental in bringing the Escalation Workshop to the entire athletic department.
- Maddie Curley – A rising senior at Boston University, organized workshops on campus with multiple groups, facilitated the workshop with Boston area schools, and helped organized a One Love game dedication. Maddie always shows up for her team and for One Love.
Individuals can help spread the One Love movement in a powerful way, but navigating large school systems can be tough for any one person alone. For that reason, in 2017 we honored SUNY where multiple leaders from multiple walks of life at the school came forward to help advance One Love’s work and to educate, empower and activate the young people at their school in a movement for change.
Specifically within the system, accolades are due to the following incredible leaders:
- Joe Storch – General Counsel for SUNY, who spearheaded the efforts to bring One Love to all SUNY Campuses and beyond.
- Ed Suriano – President of SUNYAC SAAC, who lead the efforts for SUNYAC’s 10 Million Yards for Yeardley Challenge to be held Spring 2017.
- Ben Chatley and Meghan Bartlett – For bringing the Escalation Workshop to all student athletes at Fredonia before their 10MYFY event in April (completely student-led, started this semester).
