Seven Cornellians are presented Cook Awards for contributions to improving climate for women on campus

A Cornell graduate student, three faculty members and three staff members received Constance E. Cook and Alice H. Cook Recognition Awards April 17 for their contributions to improving the climate for women at Cornell. The awards were presented at a recognition luncheon in Becker House.

The awards are granted by the Advisory Committee on the Status of Women, a campus group, and are selected from nominations by members of the Cornell community.

This year's winners:

The awards are named for Constance Cook, Cornell's first woman vice president, and Alice Cook, one of the first women faculty members at the School of Industrial and Labor Relations, both of them early advocates for women at Cornell.
