PWA Unsung Hero/ine Awards

Nominate an Unsung Hero/ine today! (The 2019 deadline has passed)

A principal goal of the Professional Women’s Association is to develop awareness throughout the campus community of the many contributions that staff and faculty make to UC Santa Barbara. With this goal in mind, we are asking for nominations of women and men who consistently make our campus community a better place. Unsung Hero/ines share a firm commitment to the mission of UCSB. Many nominees volunteer outside their departments, and all pour their hearts into their work.

Recipients will be recognized at PWA's 23rd Annual Professional Development Conference, on May 9, 2019. Current PWA officers and PWA Steering Committee members are not eligible to submit nominations, nor are they eligible to be nominated.
