The Elizabeth D. Gee Memorial Lectureship Award recognizes and honors an outstanding faculty member of the University of Colorado for efforts to advance women in academia, interdisciplinary scholarly contributions, and distinguished teaching. Instituted in 1992, the award is named for Elizabeth Gee, a faculty member in the School of Nursing at CU Anschutz Medical Campus and the late wife of former CU president, Gordon Gee. The Gee award is the only award in the CU system that specifically recognizes outstanding work on women's issues and a concerted effort to advance women in the academy. It carries with it a $1,000 cash prize, and the recipient is invited to present their scholarly work at the Gee Memorial Lecture during the CU Women Succeeding Professional Development Symposium.
Any full-time faculty member from any of the CU campuses may be nominated. Previous nominees are encouraged to re-apply. Preference will be given to nominees who have been with CU for at least five years.
The criteria for selecting recipients of the award are as follows:
- Efforts to advance women in academia beyond her/his/their own department;
