Professor Theresa Reineke has been selected to receive a 2016 Sara Evans Faculty Woman Scholar/Leader Award. The award is sponsored by the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost and the Women’s Center. It recognizes women faculty at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities who have achieved significant national and international accomplishments and honors and who contribute as leaders on campus. In addition to supporting outstanding women scholars, this award also reflects the university’s strong commitment to future leaders.
