Barbara Riegel, PhD, Wins University Award for Undergraduate Advising

The Trustees’ Council of Penn Women (TCPW) Award recognizes undergraduate faculty advisors who have distinguished themselves in providing assistance and advice to their advisee students and who have made a significant impact on the academic experience of these students.

TCPW is an international network of Penn alumnae. These leaders, by power of their example, support, foster, and promote the advancement of women and women’s issues within the University, thus enriching the University community as a whole. Beginning in 2012, to mark the organization’s quarter-century milestone, the TCPW 25th Anniversary Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Advising was established.

Riegel is the Edith Clemmer Steinbright Professor of Gerontology in Penn Nursing’s Department of Biobehavioral Health Sciences.
