University of Arkansas Extraordinary Woman Nomination

In an effort to assist the Commission’s effort to spotlight individuals who have been advocates of women and women’s issues, the Commission encourages all individuals on the University of Arkansas campus to consider recognizing such persons.

They empower those around them and make a positive impact on the women’s experiences on our campus.
