The Commission on the Status of Women was created by the ASU President in 1991 to monitor the advancement of women in Arizona’s university in three major areas: equity, career development and climate. Since it’s inception, the Commission has coordinated a number of important programs and opportunties that have helped to increase the status of women at ASU.

Dedicated to community outreach, the CSW is pleased to announce the launch of our annual holiday drive. This year's drive will run from November 4th through December 6th and will benefit foster children in the valley. We will be collecting a wide of gift and necessity items including toys, board games, clothes and many more items. All donations will benefit the non-profit organizations Arizonans for Children and Helen's Hope Chest. Arizonans for Children provides holiday gifts to foster children, most of whom reside in group home situations, while Helen's Hope Chest provides gifts, necessity items, and resources to foster children residing in foster family situations. Help us to help these children in need! All donations are significant and even a package of socks or a small toy can make a difference in the life of a child this holiday season. For full details on the holiday drive, including drop off locations and ways that you can help, please visit Holiday Drive 2013.
