Dr. Victoria Gordon was one of ten women honored at this year’s “Hats Off to Women” luncheon. The Office for Institutional Diversity and Inclusion sponsored the luncheon and served as hosts for the 4th annual event held at the Faculty House on March 28, 2014. Dr. Gordon was nominated for this “Unsung Heroine” award by Amber Scott, staff member in Human Resources and a graduate of the MPA program.
March is Women’s History Month and a time to celebrate the achievement of women both nationally and locally. This WKU event focuses on the accomplishments of women at WKU and within the community. The keynote speaker for this event was Michele Tolbert who spoke about the importance of women and the many “hats” they wear in their personal and professional lives. Michele is the Director of Human Resources for the Warren County Board of Education and also serves as an adjunct in the MPA program, Political Science department.
Congratulations to Professor Victoria Gordon who had an article published in the Summer issue of the Journal of Public Affairs Education. The article explores challenges faced by small MPA programs.
