The University of Arizona College of Nursing is proud to acknowledge the achievement of Professor Terry Badger, PhD, RN, who received a University of Arizona Women of Impact Award 2023! Dr. Badger received this award for her stellar contributions to science, leadership, and education. She was selected for this competitive award based on her research accomplishments, successful mentoring of junior faculty and PhD students, and many years of leadership as division chair and now as Director of Research Initiatives. This is truly a well-deserved honor!
The Women of Impact initiative, led by the Office of Research, Innovation & Impact, was created as an effort to embrace and empower women who, through their work at the University, are laying the foundation for a brighter, more equitable future. Each year, we solicit nominations from across the University and select 30 remarkable faculty and staff members whose expertise and recognition in their respective fields elevates our status as a Research I, land-grant institution. Candidates are evaluated based on their unique skills in discovery and innovation, community impact, willingness to empower others, and their commitment to the University's purpose, mission and values. This year, organizers received nearly 200 high-quality nominations, and our amazing selection committee carefully assessed the candidates and ultimately put forward this year’s finalists. The University will commemorate this cohort online and through social media over the next six weeks, and awardees will be honored at a private event on Oct. 20.
