University Committee for the Advancement of Women and Gender Equity (UCW)

Charge

The University Committee for the Advancement of Women and Gender Equity (UCW) works to promote a university climate that fosters the full participation of women faculty, staff and students. The UCW concerns itself with policies and practices that may cause particular difficulties for women as employees and students.

The UCW is an appointed body with formal appointments made through the Office of the Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion. All appointed members shall serve a three-year term with one opportunity for reappointment to a second term. Student members are appointed for a one-year term renewable up to three years. All representatives will serve for the term as designated by their organization or constituency.

Chair, vice chair and past chair positions will be appointed by the Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion using a process parallel to membership appointment. The term of office for each leadership position will be one year from among UCW membership. The vice chair will move into the position of chair following her one-year term, and then move into the past chair position upon completion of the chair position. In case of resignation, the current chair and Office of the Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion will appoint a replacement.
