Anthony Award to one individual in the campus community who actively promotes women's growth at UNF, provides a positive role model for women on campus, works to improve the position of women at UNF through advocacy and education, and exhibits qualities of leadership on campus. Students, faculty and staff of UNF are eligible for the award. The recipient is announced at the annual Women's History Month Luncheon, hosted by the Women's Center in March.   

Susan B. Anthony Award Nominations

UNF students, faculty and staff are eligible for the award, which is given each year to one member of the University community who has made significant contributions to the women of UNF. The application period for the 2020 Susan B. Anthony Award is now closed.
