Membership Information and Roster



Membership Process

Each spring, nominations to the Commission on the Status of Women (COSW) are solicited of both faculty and staff for appointment consideration to the commission. Faculty and staff may self-nominate or they may nominate others who are then encouraged to apply. You can find the application to apply here. The list of nominees is then presented to the President in April. The President appoints members for a three-year term (up to three terms possible), to begin August 1. 

To nominate someone, please send an email with the name and contact information of that person to the chair of the nominations committee.
