Terry Alexander Award
Every year an undergraduate receives the Terry Alexander Award, honoring the mother of Courtney Alexander, a Women's Studies major who graduated in 2006. Terry was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1982, and worked to raise awareness about the disease until her death in 2006. This award is given annually to a graduating major in Women’s and Gender Studies, who has completed the Gender, Sexuality, and Public Health track, and is interested in a career in health care and/or health advocacy.
