Tribute to Jan Oaks and GWS end of year celebration


Dear GWS students, faculty, and friends,

On Monday May 4, 2015, from 3:00-4:30, GWS will host a tribute to Dr. Jan Oaks, followed by a reception from 4:30-5:00 at the Commonwealth House (part of the Gaines Center) at 226 East Maxwell Street.  We are hoping that you will join us for this celebration and acknowledgement of Jan’s life and her generous contributions to students, colleagues, and the university. We would also like to invite you to participate in this tribute by sharing your memories, stories, or thoughts about Jan. We would like to post them, with your permission, on our GWS website. We plan to finalize our program for the tribute by Monday April 27, so please send us your remembrances to Michelle Del Toro at by then, and let us know if you would like to read them at the tribute or have someone read them for you. Your participation would be greatly appreciated. We will also announce the details about donating to the GWS Jan Oaks Scholarship Fund for undergraduates that we are establishing.

Following the reception, we will hold our annual end-of- the- year awards ceremony from 5:00-6:30 and we hope you will join us for that event as well.

Please feel free to circulate this invitation widely. We hope to see you on May 4th.

Karen Tice

Chair of Gender and Women’s Studies
