Margaret Willard Award

Margaret Willard, first President of the Faculty Women’s Club, 1919

Every year the UWC recognizes someone from the Boulder area that we admire for her contributions to her field, and whose contributions ultimately benefit our community. The first Margaret Willard Award went to CU graduate students, faculty, and those working for the University, who were rising in their fields of endeavor and deserved recognition. Since then, UWC includes members from the wider community.

The University Women’s Club presents the Margaret Willard Award annually at the Spring Honors Reception. The woman receiving the award must fulfill some or all of the following criteria:

  • Demonstrate outstanding work in her field of endeavor
  • Enhance the quality of life for women on the Boulder campus and/or in the Boulder community
  • Be an exceptional role model
  • Elevate women’s performance
  • Bring honor to all women and to the University/Boulder community through her accomplishments
