President Maimon Awarded
February 19, 2014
The American Council on Education has given GSU president Elaine P. Maimon the 2014 Donna Shavlik Award for women’s leadership in higher education. President Maimon has been recognized as a longtime leader in strengthening higher education through inclusion and diversity.
The award was presented March 8, at ACE’s 96th Annual Meeting in San Diego, during the Women’s Leadership Dinner.
ACE established the Donna Shavlik Award to honor the long and outstanding service of Donna Shavlik, former director of ACE's Office of Women in Higher Education (now part of the Inclusive Excellence Group). Presented annually, the award honors an individual who demonstrates a sustained commitment to advancing women in higher education, through leadership and career development, campus climate and mentoring.
Maimon has served as an ACE Women’s Leadership presidential sponsor in Arizona, Alaska and Illinois and worked as a state coordinator in Rhode Island and New York. She was a member of ACE’s Women’s Commission. When ACE first organized the National Identification Program for Women, Maimon—then an assistant professor at Beaver College (PA) (now Arcadia University)—assisted the college president in organizing the Pennsylvania chapter.
