President’s Commission Names Award Winners

The President’s Commission on the Status of Women (PCSW) at CSULB recently selected recipients for its Sixth Annual Advancement of Women Awards.

The commission generally honors a student, staff member, administrator and faculty member who actively contribute to the advancement of women on campus through their scholarship, teaching, organizational work, campus community service or any other form of support for women at the university. Women and men who are current members of the campus community are eligible for the award.
