Trabant Award deadline April 12

The deadline for this year's nominations for the E. Arthur Trabant Award for Women's Equity is April 12.

The Commission on the Status of Women has established the award in recognition of President Emeritus E. Arthur Trabant's support for women's equity at UD. The recognition is given annually to any individual, department, administrative unit, or committee that has contributed to equity for women at the University.

The commission defines "contributions" broadly to encourage as wide a range of nominations as possible, but examples might include developing exemplary programs or curricula, implementing innovative policies and procedures related to women's equity, and enhancing existing services to women.

Nominations will be accepted from any member of the University community. Self-nominations must be accompanied by at least one supporting letter from outside the unit.

Selections will be made by a committee appointed by the Commission on the Status of Women. Awards will be announced on April 16 and presented at a ceremony on May 21.
