The Old Dominion University Women's Caucus has named Janet Katz its 2006 Outstanding Woman of the Year Award.

Katz, associate dean for the College of Arts and Letters, received a plaque in honor of her distinguished service to the university, particularly her continued support of women and women's issues.

In presenting the award, Janet Bing, graduate program director of applied linguistics and president-elect of the caucus, recognized Katz for her accessibility, openness and courteous demeanor.

Katz received numerous nominations for the award. One nominator cited her dedication and loyalty, noting her "complete and unadorned perspective of the university." Another submission stated, "The wonderful environment for women in the college and the university is directly related to Katz's service."

The University Women's Caucus, formed in 1974, is an organization that strives to promote the welfare of women throughout the university.
