The award recognizes a senior woman in the discipline who has made a substantial contribution to the scholarship of political science (not necessarily in the field of women and politics), who has made significant contributions to the profession and its associations, who has actively mentored women at her own institution or elsewhere, and who serves as a positive role model for women in the profession.

Strolovitch is an affiliated faculty member with the Department of Politics. Her research explores the intersecting politics of race, class, gender and sexuality in a polity marked by structural inequalities.

The caucus will hold a roundtable in her honor on April 5. The roundtable participants speak to the many contributions of the scholar to the profession and the discipline.
