The University Council on Women was established by LSU's Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor Astrid Merget.
UCW serves as an advisory council to the provost to address specific, tangible concerns and issues affecting all women in the LSU community. Continuing the outstanding efforts and strides made by the LSU Commission on the Status of Women, the UCW will also assist in developing policies and procedures that promote equitable participation of women students, faculty, and staff.
Working in three ad-hoc committees, the UCW will study three critical issues in the Spring 2013 semester.
- Monitoring the university reorganization
- Faculty and Staff Wellness
- Campus Safety
