 UPDATE: Natalicio Expected to make ‘Full Recovery’ After Collapsing on Campus Last Thursday

“Women university presidents may be far more common today than when I became president 30 years ago, but women remain underrepresented not only in university presidencies, but in CEO and board positions and just about everywhere else. But let’s remember too that impact isn’t measured in job titles. Whatever role you play, you are going to have an impact. And people, whatever their backgrounds, are doing that every day.”
