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.

The awards will be presented at the Women’s History Month Dinner on Thursday, March 12, 2020. For ticket information to attend the dinner, contact Jeff Rech at 402-472-5668 or via email at jrech2@unl.edu

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 7, 2020 to Jody Wood, 128 ADMN, CC 0437 or via email to jwood2@unl.edu.
