March 26, 2014
Mary Dankoski, PhD, was selected as the Outstanding IUPUI Woman Leader in the "veteran" faculty category for the IUPUI Office for Women's 2014 Women's History Month Leadership Awards. Dr. Dankoski, Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs and Professional Development; Vice Chair for Faculty and Academic Affairs, Department of Family Medicine; and Lester D. Bibler Scholar and Associate Professor of Family Medicine, was presented the award at the Women's History Month Leadership Reception.
This event began in 1998 as a luncheon sponsored by the Commission on Women and the office of Campus Interrelations to celebrate Women's History Month by creating a "Book of 100" top women student leaders on campus. The event has evolved over the years into an annual reception featuring a keynote address on the National Women's History Month theme and the presentation of awards to top women leaders on campus. The Office for Student Involvement makes awards to top student women leaders. In 2002 recognition awards were added for full-time faculty and staff as a part of this event. In 2005 an award was added for part-time women faculty or staff. In 2009, an "Inspirational Woman" award was created.
