On January 31, 2008 Dorothy died of a heart attack at the age of 64 years old.
Dorothy touched everyone who crossed her path. Many students thought of Dorothy as a mother or grandmother. She would offer you her opinion even if you did not solicit it. She frequently chided students for failing to wear proper winter attire. Several CSI staff members have continued this tradition in Dorothy’s memory.
In 2003-2004 Dorothy was the recipient of the Outstanding Support Staff Service Award. This honor is awarded to the support staff member who best represents the concept of service to students. Dorothy embodied the sentiment that this award recognizes and her commitment will be commemorated each time this award is given. Because of Dorothy’s demonstrated commitment to serving students and giving selflessly to students while performing her job this award was renamed on February 4, 2008 the Dorothy R. Brooks Morgan Outstanding Support Staff Service Award.
To honor Dorothy’s legacy and love of Northwestern University’s student theatre and performing arts groups, the Center for Student Involvement created the Dorothy R. Brooks Morgan Theatre Memorial Fund. The fund will provide additional monetary support to student theatre and performing arts groups.
