About the UA Commission on the Status of Women

UA Women's Plaza at night

The Commission on the Status of Women is a well-established advocacy arm of the University of Arizona that actively champions a just, equitable and inclusive campus. We shape policy, address current needs and promote the advancement of all gender identities. CSW is directly connected to the UA Diversity Coalition.

CSW monitors statistics and cultural indicators on campus to identify signs that indicate that women are succeeding and diversity is improving. We have also worked to increase parental accommodation for graduate students and expand child care options for both students and employees.

We are women and men. We are faculty, appointed professionals, classified staff and graduate students. We are the University's stewards of equity and inclusion.

CSW commissioners are appointed by the UA president. Faculty and staff members serve three-year terms; students serve a one-year appointment with the option to renew. Membership typically requires a commitment of four to eight hours per month. More time may be required of workgroup chairs.
