Committee on the Status of Women Seeks Nominations for New Members

The Johns Hopkins University Committee on the Status of Women is soliciting nominations for new members from the campus community.

The primary mission of the committee is to be an advocate for the entire community of women at Johns Hopkins. This community includes undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff. To achieve its mission, the committee advises the provost on issues related to women, gender and diversity; investigates, studies and makes recommendations concerning the needs of women in the university community; provides general oversight, monitoring and guidance on a variety of universitywide initiatives that address issues affecting the status of women at the university; communicates and collaborates with other groups concerned with gender and diversity; educates the community about women's issues; and celebrates women's accomplishments.

The UCSOW meets once a month, and subcommittees generally meet monthly; therefore, prospective members should anticipate a monthly time commitment of two to four hours.

Nominations should include a short biography and a statement of the reasons why you believe the nominee should be appointed to the committee. Self-nominations are encouraged and should include a short biography and the applicant's reasons for wishing to serve on the committee. All nominations should be forwarded to Ray Gillian, Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action Programs, 130 Garland Hall, Homewood campus. Envelopes should be marked "University Committee on the Status of Women Nomination."

The deadline for receiving nominations is Aug. 29. Questions or comments may be directed to Ray Gillian at 410-516-8075.
