Named to celebrate Texas congresswoman Barbara Jordan, this award honors a faculty or staff person on GVSU’s campus who has been a long-time advocate of women, women's issues, and the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies program, and who has bridged the gap between traditional academic fields and women's and gender studies. The winners are selected based on the criteria of having made lasting and profound contributions in the areas of women’s learning, scholarship, and/or leadership, and of having created a climate in which long-lasting changes can develop and grow. Past winners include CLAS Associate Dean for Faculty, Resources and Scheduling Gretchen Galbraith, and Provost Maria Cimitile.
