Faculty Assembly Committee for Women

 

Mission

Mission

The UCCS Faculty Assembly Committee on Women was organized in 1992 by women faculty as an informal networking system. An existing network of women and faculty who met regularly formed the core. Dorothea Olkowski served as the first chair. Some years later, under Abby Ferber, it became a standing committee of the Faculty Assembly. The committee is associated with the University of Colorado Faculty Council Women’s Committee and continues to address the concerns of women and women-identified faculty, including:

  1. Assessing the cultural climate of the university as it pertains to opportunities of women and women-identified faculty for academic advancement, productivity and appropriate compensation;

     

  2. Making recommendations for creating an academic environment that fosters the academic success of women and women-identified faculty

     

  3. Working to assure fairness in the recruitment and retention of women and women-identified faculty;

     

  4. Developing support networks and recommending policy to address the needs of women and women-identified faculty
