Returning to campus to receive an Outstanding Alumni Award, Sunu P. Chandy ’94 will share some of her experiences with our community. By combining her interests and training, Sunu has been a passionate and dynamic civil rights attorney since her law school graduation. In July 2016, Sunu began as the deputy director for civil rights for the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. In this role, Sunu spearheads the civil rights work at this agency and will be focused on OCR’s ongoing priorities, including implementation of Section 1557, and will lead OCR’s work on Administration priorities that involve civil rights.
