President's Council of Cornell Women

26th Annual Meeting | March 4–6, 2016

Advancing women students, faculty, staff, and alumnae

PCCW is a group of highly accomplished alumnae working to enhance the involvement of women students, faculty, staff, and alumnae as leaders within Cornell University and its many communities. We seek to engage accomplished alumnae who have not been active in alumni organizations. To achieve these goals, we:

  • Find ways to expand the role of women within Cornell’s decision-making groups
  • Through the Office of Volunteer Programs, advise the president on issues important to
    Cornell women
  • Help attract outstanding women students, faculty, and staff to Cornell, and enhance their
    leadership opportunities
  • Engage leading alumnae by strengthening their ties to each other and to Cornell
  • Offer guidance and role models for Cornell women
  • Provide financial support for PCCW and other initiatives that help Cornell women

PCCW was founded in 1990 by then-President Frank H. T. Rhodes with the guiding leadership of trustees Lilyan Affinito '53 and Patricia Carry Stewart '50.
