The PCWI established the Outstanding Woman of the Year Award in 1977. The Award is an annual Spring event that recognizes women in the campus community who have made exemplary contributions to the improvement of the quality of women’s lives. The nomination and selection process is coordinated by the Award Committee which consists of members who are actively engaged in service to the University.
On April 2, 2002 the Commission presented the Awards to Ellin K. Scholnick, Associate Provost for Faculty Affairs and Professor of Psychology. Dr. Scholnick’s contributions to the campus in general and to its community of women in particular are legion. She has done much of her academic work in
Developmental psychology since she first came to the University in 1967 as an assistant professor. Dr. Scholnick accepted her award with a brief talk on liberal feminism in the university. President Dan Mote presented the award.
