Committee on the Status of Women

The overall goal of the commission is to be involved in an all-institution program to provide and enhance opportunities for University women.

The commission’s objectives are to initiate, coordinate, and make available needed research and recommendations upon the status of women within the University, to be aware of and assist the University in its affirmative action plan, to support women employees and students in their needs and concerns, to cooperate with other state commissions in accomplishing mutual goals, to raise the level of awareness of women, and to function as a support group for women faculty, staff, and students.

The commission is composed of interested volunteers from the faculty, administration, and staff. The commission’s advisory board, representing the commission and all University women, serves as an advisory committee to the chancellor and is directly responsible to the commission and to the chancellor for all matters concerning women at the University .
