Woman of the Year Award
This highly prestigious, university-wide award is presented annually at the Women's Conference and is sponsored by the Office of the Provost.
Seton Hall University has a longstanding tradition of honoring outstanding women who have made significant contributions to their fields, communities and to the success of other women in the Seton Hall community and beyond.
In addition to being strong leaders focused on service to and/or research in support of the advancement of women, nominees must have been employed by the university for at least 10 years and be in good standing with the university.
Students, staff, faculty and administrators are all welcome to submit nominations. Note that this honor is considered a "lifetime award"-be sure to check out the list of prior recipients below before submitting a nomination so as not to nominate a former awardee for a second time.
