Riki Jacobs Livingston Pride Award


Riki Jacobs

The Riki Jacobs Livingston Pride Award is given annually by the Livingston Alumni Association (LAA) to the Rutgers-New Brunswick graduating senior who most embodies the spirit of Livingston College and its attributes of leadership and social action.  Riki E. Jacobs (1957-2009, pictured at right) was the director of the Hyacinth Foundation, an AIDS support organization, among many roles she fulfilled to assist vulnerable populations, and also was one of LAA's first Livingston College Distinguished Alumni, honored in 2000.

Congratulations to Eshan Kaul SEBS '19 (left) on being named the recipient of the 2019 Riki Jacobs Livingston Pride AwarEsha Kauld. Kaul earned a Bachelor of Arts from Rutgers' School of Environmental and Biological Sciences (SEBS) in May 2019, as an Honors College scholar, with a major in Biological Sciences and a minor in Psychology. At the same time, he completed his first year of study at Rutgers' Robert Wood Johnson Medical School (RWJMS), under a seven-year Rutgers-RWJMS BA/MD program. He plans to earn a master's degree in Public Health at Rutgers, before graduating as a medical doctor in 2022.  While Kaul has excelled in academics at Rutgers, he has also served as role model for his fellow students and for elementary school students in New Brunswick. In 2016, he was one of the co-founders of Access to Education (A2E), a Rutgers-led tutoring program for pupils in first, second, and third grades at New Brunswick's Roosevelt Elementary School.
