Women's Center Seeking Nominations for 2019 Virginia Wolf Distinguished Service Awards

February 13, 2019

The Women's Center is seeking nominations for the 2019 Virginia Wolf Distinguished Service Awards. Each year, members of the campus and local community are recognized with this award by the Women's Center for their continuous dedication to activism for gender justice.

Virginia ("Ginny") Wolf was a professor of physical education at the U of I from 1964-1982. Ginny took an active role in addressing issues affecting women on campus, including chairing the U of I Women's Caucus and helping to launch the campaign that brought about the establishment of a permanent Women's Center. The award was created in 2002 to recognize individuals who reflect a similar level of commitment and demonstrate a level activism reverent of what Ginny gave more than 30 years ago.

Selection of awardees is by review from a panel composed of past honorees. Women's Center staff members serve as advisors to the nominations review committee, but do not participate in the review process.

The deadline to submit a nomination is Friday, March 1. Please contact the Women's Center at wcenter@uidaho.edu with any questions.
