The Women’s Center presented its Women’s Empowerment Award to University Provost Shirley Willihnganz and Eleanor Jordan, executive director of the Kentucky Commission on Women.

The center also honored winners of the 2013 Mary K. Tachau Gender Equity Award and the Dr. M. Celeste Nichols Professional Development Award. UofL’s Commission on the Status of Women sponsors the Tachau award to recognize a person who has worked to improve gender equity in the community. The university’s Commission on Diversity and Racial Equality and the Dennis C. Golden Torchbearer Endowment Program in the Division of Student Affairs sponsor the Nichols award to support academic or professional enrichment for graduate or professional students.
