Donna Hardaway Receives UCPEA President’s Award

The recipient of the President’s Award is Donna Hardaway, a long-time Union Representative and active member of UCPEA who was instrumental in establishing our new Social Justice Committee. She is an administrative manager in the Registrar’s Office.

“UCPEA’s newly permanent Social Justice Committee would not be what it is today without Donna’s vision and commitment to researching, educating and working to dismantle social inequities that affect our members and the UConn community,” says President Mike White.
