Award nominations for the 2011 Elizabeth D. Gee Memorial Lectureship Award are requested by the Faculty Council Women’s Committee.
The award honors an outstanding faculty member of the University of Colorado for efforts to advance women in academia, interdisciplinary scholarly contributions and distinguished teaching. Instituted in 1992, the award is named for Elizabeth Gee, a faculty member in the Health Sciences Center School of Nursing and the late wife of former CU President Gordon Gee.
The Gee Award, which includes a $1,000 prize, is the only award in the CU system that specifically recognizes outstanding work on women’s issues and efforts to advance women in the academy. The recipient will be asked to present his or her scholarly work at the CU Women Succeeding Annual Professional Development Symposium set for Feb. 24, 2012.
