Nominees sought for three awards administered by CEW+
In honor of former director Carol Hollenshead’s 20-year tenure at the Center for the Education of Women+, CEW+ is seeking proposal submissions for the 2023 Carol Hollenshead Inspire Award for Excellence in Promoting Equity and Social Change. The award amount is $1,000 for individuals and $2,000 for groups. Eligible applicants include those faculty, staff, post-doctorates, research fellows, and students who will be enrolled or employed at any U-M campus during the 2023-24 academic year, and whose sustained efforts have resulted in greater equity in regard to gender, race, class, age, disability, gender identity or sexual orientation at Michigan or beyond.
The Academic Women’s Caucus is also accepting nominations from the university community for the 2024 Sarah Goddard Power and Rhetaugh G. Dumas Progress in Diversifying Awards.
Sarah Goddard Power was a major contributor to the advancement of higher education, an advocate for affirmative action and human rights, and a champion of freedom for the international press. A U-M Regent for more than 12 years, she worked to advance the position of women and minorities in faculty and administrative roles. The Sarah Goddard Power Award recognizes those who have made significant achievements in contributing to the betterment of current challenges faced by women through distinguished leadership, scholarship, or other activities related to their professional lives.
Rhetaugh G. Dumas was an esteemed leader with vision, insight, and wise counsel who had a major impact on the advancement of nursing, healthcare, and academic programs at U-M. Vice Provost Emerita Dumas was the first African-American woman to hold the position of a Dean at the University of Michigan when she was appointed in 1981. She remained Dean of Nursing until 1994 when she was named the inaugural vice provost for health affairs and the Lucille Cole Professor of Nursing. The Rhetaugh G. Dumas Progress in Diversifying Award recognizes a U-M academic unit’s progress in establishing and maintaining a concurrent ethnic/racial and gender diversity at the full professor and associate professor ranks, both tenured and non-tenured, and concurrent ethnic/racial and gender diversifying in junior ranks.
Recipients of all three awards will be recognized at an award ceremony on February 7, 2024.
The deadline for all award applications is Oct. 23, 2023.
