Committee On the Status of Women: Support, Educate, Recognize, Advocate
MetadataShow full item record
Eileen B. Lieben, Dean of Women and namesake of Creighton’s Center for Women, requested formation of a committee to address the needs and concerns of women across campus. In 1971, Fr. Joesph J. Labaj, S.J. appointed an advisory committee and shortly thereafter the first committee meeting was held on October 28, 1971. The University Committee on the Status of Women was made a standing statutory committee in 1973. Since that time faculty, staff and student committee members have worked to uphold the committee’s mission; giving tribute to the efforts of Creighton women of the past and providing a supportive environment for the women of the present and future.
