The President’s Commission on Women & Gender Equity was established in 1997 by then President Al Yates to assist the University in designing strategies and promoting activities that enhance gender equity and address women’s issues.

The Commission has worked closely with the Presidents of Colorado State University throughout the decades and was issued an updated charge in May 2014 by President Tony Frank. This updated charge asks the Commission to identify areas of concern in gender equity and campus climate and provide specific recommendations to the President for areas that the University can improve.
