Awards

Congratulations to Dr. Allison Buchanan, 2019 Angie Warren Perkins Award winner and Monica Anderson, 2019 UT Notable Woman Award winner.

 

The Commission for Women is seeking nominations for our 2020 Chancellor’s Honors awards: the Angie Warren Perkins award and the Notable UT Woman award. Please see the attached documents or visit the links listed below for descriptions of each award and details to nominate deserving women!

2020 Notable UT Woman Award

The Commission for Women recognized its first Notable UT Woman in 1995 after a suggestion from then University Historian Dr. Milton Klein that recommended that outstanding women connected with the University be honored on an annual basis.

In the past the award has recognized women from four rotating categories: administrator, alumnae, faculty, and staff. This year the Commission recognizes a UT administrator member.

AWARD CRITERIA/ATTRIBUTES:

  • A woman who is outstanding in her field of study.
  • A woman who is a pioneer or groundbreaker—the first to achieve something noteworthy.
  • A woman who has conducted or supported gender-related research or research with beneficial effects for women.
  • A woman who has rendered program support and development beneficial to the University community.
  • A woman who has improved the lives of women in the community or made a significant positive impact on women’s lives.
  • A woman who has contributed to gender-related research or facilitated the implementation of research for women.

Information about the award and a list of recent award winners are available on the Chancellor’s Honors website.
