In March, the Women's Resources Center, Women and Gender in Global Perspectives, and International Education at the University of Illinois sponsored an event in honor of International Women's Day that honored 18 women in the campus and community for their extraordinary contributions to improving the lives of women and girls locally, nationally, and internationally.
Clinical Counselor Dr. Rakhi Sen was among those honored. She currently chairs the International Student Outreach area at the Counseling Center. Since joining the staff in 2001, she also has been active in outreach and treatment of U of I students affected by a range of concerns. In addition to her clinical and outreach efforts, she also supervises trainees including pre-doctoral interns and practicum students..
“Rakhi is very deserving of this recognition,” says Carla McCowan, Counseling Center Director. “She genuinely cares about the students at Illinois and works very hard to promote inclusion and acceptance.”
