"Mothers, Mentors and Muses” is the Women’s Center’s signature event recognizing Kent State University female faculty or staff members who have made a significant difference in the life of a student or colleague. More than 150 women across the university have received this honor.

You are invited to submit* the name and a descriptive statement of a Kent State woman for the 2014 “Mothers, Mentors and Muses” event.

This award is intended to honor women of Kent State who have served in any of three roles:

  • Mother – one who has helped “birth” ideas, thoughts and academic endeavors in others, or who serves as a nurturing individual to others.
  • Mentor – one who serves as a trusted counselor, colleague and/or role model.
  • Muse – one who inspires creativity and artistic/academic passion in others.

Who can be recommended for the honor?
Any female Kent State faculty or staff member, except those who have previously been honored at this event.

See the list of previous honorees from 2010 to 2013.

Who can submit?
Any member of the Kent State community, including faculty, staff, emeriti, students and alumni can submit a nomination. Click here to complete the submission form. The deadline for all submissions is Dec. 20.

Honorees will be celebrated at the Women’s Center’s “Mother’s, Mentors and Muses” annual scholarship fundraiser on March 11, to which the university community is invited to attend.

* Note that all names and submissions will be recognized the night of the event.
