Outstanding Women of Color in Education Award

The UW System Outstanding Women of Color in Education Awards are organized and supported annually by the UW System Women's Studies Consortium and Office of Academic Diversity and Development.  The awards and recognition ceremony was initiated in 1994 to acknowledge the ties and shared concerns among administrators, faculty, staff, and students within women's studies and ethnic studies, and to uphold a continuing commitment to Plan 2008: Educational Quality through Racial and Ethnic Diversity (work that is continued through Inclusive Excellence efforts across the UW System).  At the annual awards ceremony and luncheon, award recipients receive well-earned acknowledgement by both the UW System and their home campus community. 

Each year, the Chancellor selects a woman of color who has made outstanding contributions to the UW Eau Claire community to be honored at the Annual State of Wisconsin Women's Studies Conference.
