Outstanding Contribution to Women Awards

The Chancellor's Outstanding Contribution to Women Awards recognize outstanding faculty, staff and student efforts to create a climate that encourages women to succeed at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Two awards are given, one for faculty or staff members and another for students or student organizations. The award recipients must demonstrate a sustained and tangible impact on the campus community.

Recipients will be announced the week of March 7th and the awards will be presented at the UNL Women’s History Month Dinner on Thursday, March 17, 2016 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at the Champions Club. 

If you know an individual, department or group that is noteworthy in advancing the status of women on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus please take the time to forward your nomination (student/student organization or faculty/staff/department/organization) and letter of support by February 15, 2016 to Jody Wood, 128 ADMN, CC 0437 or via email to jwood2@unl.edu.
