The President, the Provost, and the Cook Awards Committee oversee the biannual Cook Awards. The Cook Awards honor Cornell students, faculty, and staff members for their commitment to women’s issues and for improving the climate for women at Cornell. The award honors men and women whose dedication to women’s issues at Cornell significantly exceeds expected job responsibilities. The awards are named in honor of the late Constance E. Cook, Cornell’s first woman vice president, and the late Professor Emerita Alice H. Cook, founding member of Cornell’s Committee on the Status of Women.
