The center proudly recognizes individuals, programs, and departments, that have facilitated the advancement of women in hiring, promotion, education, and salary, or have enhanced a positive professional climate for women at the University, have shown exemplary leadership, and contributed to developing leadership. The annual awards are: Violet Haas Award, Leadership in Action Award, and Distinguished Women Scholars. Two endowments that began in 2018 partially fund two new research project grants annually. The center contributes funds to both awards. In addition, a donation funds four graduate student travel awards annually.
