Dr. Jamie Barlowe, interim dean of the College of Languages, Literature and Social Sciences, will be the guest speaker. The title of her talk is “They Also Ran: Women and U.S. Elections.”
This year, the awards are being renamed to honor Dr. Alice Skeens, longtime UT faculty member and administrator, who championed women’s issues.
“In honor of Dr. Alice Skeens’ long-standing commitment to The University of Toledo, the University Women’s Commission, and the women of the UT community, the commission board has renamed the Outstanding Woman Award in Alice’s name,” said Kelly Andrews, senior associate athletics director and senior woman administrator, who is president of the University Women’s Commission. “More than 145 women at UT have received this award during the past 25 years, and by naming this award in honor of Alice, we believe we will perpetually honor Alice’s service to the University.”
A light lunch will be served at the event, which also will feature a 50/50 raffle and auction items.
All proceeds will go toward the commission’s progress fund and scholarships.
RSVPs are requested by noon Thursday, April 19, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
