Barbara Jordan Award
Named to celebrate Texas congresswoman Barbara Jordan, this award honors a person on GVSU's campus who has been a long-time advocate of women, women's issues, and the Women and Gender Studies program, and who has bridged the gap between traditional academic fields and women's and gender studies.
- Making lasting and profound contributions in the areas of women's learning, scholarship, and leadership
- Helping to create a climate in which such lasting changes can develop and grow
The Barbara Jordan Award is presented at the annual Women's Commission Awards Ceremony held each March during Women's History Month.
