40 Years of Education, Enrichment and Empowerment
Established in 1973 as The President's Advisory Commission on the Status of Women, its initial primary focus was affirmative action and equal opportunity. To meet the changing needs of University women, the Commission was restructured twice before its present bylaws were adopted in 1986. An Executive Board, widely representative of the women at the University, sponsors programs, provides a forum for women's concerns and serves as a vehicle for communication about issues and opportunities for women in higher education. The Women's Commission has sponsored special workshops and seminars and, since 1978, has recognized the contributions of women to the University by honoring the "Woman of the Year" at an annual luncheon. Programs are open to all members of the University community.
