Frances Fu

SESP senior Frances Fu was honored with a Campus Life Award for Winter 2015 for her work as president of the Panhellenic Association. Campus Life Awards recognize students who have significantly contributed to the improvement of the quality of student life at Northwestern.

Each quarter the Office of Student Engagement honors students who have improved the Northwestern community through program development, bridging cultural differences or engaging students in a more inclusive campus community.

Fu is one of five students recognized for contributing to Northwestern during fall quarter.

As Panhellenic President, Fu has challenged her peers to approach their work from a lens of inclusion, social justice and creativity. She established two new roles within the Panhellenic system, diversity chair and inclusion chair, to ensure that the community is a more inclusive and welcoming place.

In addition, Fu led the second Women's Empowerment Week for Panhellenic, and has worked to foster a shared female identity among Panhellenic women. Her initiatives also include founding Students for Sensible Drug Policy and serving as a sexual health and assault peer educator.

According to the Office of Student Engagement, Fu has been “a dynamic and progress-oriented leader in everything she has done during her term.”

At SESP, Fu is majoring in social policy. The other students selected for Campus Life Awards for winter quarter are Stephanie Brock-Wilson, Assata Kokayi, Nandi Mehta and Noah Star.
