Three Texas Tech University faculty members were recognized by the American Association of University Women of Texas State Convention.

Katharine Hayhoe, a research associate professor in the Department of Geosciences; Elizabeth Haley, associate vice chancellor of Institutional Advancement; and Elizabeth Hall-Burns, vice provost, all received the Women of Distinction Award.

"These exemplary women leaders have shaped our world in distinctive and admirable ways," Stephanie Nash, president of the Lubbock Betty Anderson Branch, said. "The American Association of University Women of Texas is honored to recognize the gifted generosity of these women in their lifelong endeavors to advance equity for women and girls."

The AAUW strives to promote equity for women and girls through advocacy, education and research. The Women of Distinction program recognizes women leaders who have made outstanding accomplishments in their professions or their communities. The convention was held April 26 in Dallas.
