About the Award
Established in 2001, the Robin Morgan Award is awarded annually to a staff woman who has worked at DU for at least two years, and who exemplifies an advocacy for women and goes beyond her job responsibilities. She should promote and enhance the University community by addressing the concerns of women through her example and her work with other women.
The award is named for Robin Morgan, who worked at DU from 1996-1997, and organized staff women to foster their professional development and enhance the mission of the University through women's voices and competence. The Robin Morgan Award is intended for a woman who carries on these ideals.
