A principal goal of the Professional Women's Association is to develop awareness throughout the campus community of women's contributions to the mission of UCSB. With this goal in mind, we are asking for nominations of women who consistently make our campus a better place. Some Unsung Heroines work quietly behind the scenes, others may be more widely known; each shares a firm commitment to the mission of UCSB. Many nominees volunteer outside their departments and all pour their energies into their jobs.
Time to Name Unsung Heroines!
A completed Unsung Heroine nomination packet should include the following materials:
All Unsung Heroines are publicly recognized at PWA’s annual conference, in addition to having their image & deeds profiled in our publication and on the PWA website, please make sure that your nominee is amenable to being the focus of such attention.
As you are writing your statement of nomination, please consider the following questions:
All nominations are open to career/casual faculty and staff. Nominees do not have to be current members of PWA.
