CEE at Illinois Ph.D. student Hannah Lohman and senior Abby Culloton have each received the Outstanding Collegiate Member Award from the Society of Women Engineers (SWE). This annual award is given to a maximum of ten students from among all university SWE sections.

The award honors SWE members with at least two years involvement with the organization who have made an outstanding contribution to SWE, other engineering groups, their community and campus.

“Our section is so proud of Hannah and Abby for winning this award and I’m especially proud of the CEE representation,” wrote Leah Courtney, fellow CEE student and SWE president at UIUC. “They have truly gone above and beyond for our section and this award is so well deserved.”

The Illinois chapter of SWE supports women and underrepresented genders of all backgrounds and identities to pursue careers in engineering and technology by developing a diverse network and providing mentoring relationships and professional development opportunities.
