The Trustees’ Council of Penn Women is an international network of Penn Alumnae. These leaders, by power of their example, support, foster, and promote the advancement of women and women’s issues within the University, thus enriching the University community as a whole.
To mark the organization’s quarter-century milestone, the TCPW 25th Anniversary Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Advising has been established to recognize
undergraduate Faculty advisors – female or male – who have distinguished themselves in providing assistance and advice to their advisee students and who have made a significant impact on the academic experience of these students.
Nominations of standing faculty may be made by an undergraduate or any member of Penn’s community for someone other than oneself, and must be submitted together with an essay – not to exceed 250 words in length – supporting the nomination. The deadline for these nominations will be February 15, 2012. Nominations should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. The two winners of this award will receive $2500 each and will be celebrated at the Spring meeting of TCPW- the 25th Anniversary meeting.
