Organizational History

The University of Northern Colorado's Commission for Women was founded in 1991 and existed until the early 2000s. Its mission was to promote a strong supportive community among women at UNC, a safe environment for learning and working, and equity for women in employment and education at UNC. It worked towards these goals through task forces, programs, and co-sponsoring of professional development for women. Co-chairs included Nancy Scott, Judy Jones, Julie Konzak, Maria Lopez, Priscilla Kimboko, Diana Vasquez, Paleri Mann, and Pat Graham. Selected accomplishements included the adoption of a Sexual Harassment Policy following a campus-wide survey; the development of a Report on the Status of Women at UNC, which examined equity in hiring, promotion, and salaries; and developing a plan and obtaining funding for the Women's Resource Center (which in 2018 became the Center for Women's and Gender Equity).
