  Chancellor's Committee on Women | University of Colorado at Boulder



The Chancellor's Committee on Women (CCW) is an informed advocate for all women on the campus — classified and unclassified staff, tenure-track and non-tenure track faculty; instructors, undergraduate, graduate, and professional students, and administrators. As a representative committee of women across campus, our collective experience is diverse and proactive, and we are committed to the following ongoing goals:

  • We monitor the status of women on campus.
  • We recommend policy to create significant change.
  • We work to assure justice and equity for women at the University of Colorado at Boulder.

In May 2005, the CCW completed its most recent report, "Improving the Campus Environment for Women." Click here for a pdf version of the report.

As a committee that monitors the climate for women on campus, we are aware that we cannot know everything that affects women's experiences, but we are actively listening and are eager to learn what is important to women at CU-Boulder.
