Brother Manpreet S. Dhanjal, Rutgers ’96, was awarded the Department of Homeland Security Secretary’s Exceptional Service Gold Medal Award. Brother Dhanjal has worked with the US Citizenship and Immigration Services since 2005, where he currently serves as the senior advisor in the Office of Policy & Strategy.
“I was privileged to share this year’s DHS Secretary’s Exceptional Service Gold Medal Award for our team’s work assisting the HHS Office of Refugee Resettlement with reunifying unaccompanied children with their families. We successfully created a national Virtual Case Management program across five time zones with the assistance of over 450 USCIS colleagues. It was truly an amazing effort,” said Dhanjal.
The Secretary’s Exceptional Service Gold Medal Award is the highest award for service granted by the secretary. The award honors exceptional leadership or service distinguished by achievements of unique national or international significance, reflecting great credit on the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for markedly improving the security of our homeland.
