The University Advocates for Women and Equity is accepting nominations for members of its coordinating council. The council solicits input from the UST community on issues of concern to women and decides on the best strategy for addressing those issues.

The coordinating council also sponsors several ongoing initiatives, including the annual presentation of the Sister Pat Kowalski Women’s Leadership Award and several other awards, scholarships for the Leaders of Today and Tomorrow Conference, and a reception for new female employees of the university.

The UAWE is open to all members of the university community who support its mission of support and advocacy for women. Individuals who are interested can nominate themselves or someone else by sending the name of the nominee to Dr. Susan Myers, no later than 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 8.

Voting will be held at the fall meeting of the UAWE at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 12, in the Luann Dummer Center for Women, Room 103, O’Shaughnessy Educational Center.

Undergraduate students especially are encouraged to consider serving on the UAWE Coordinating Council.
