ELLEN HANSEN MEMORIAL PRIZE
The Ellen Hansen Memorial Prize is awarded annually
to a UCD woman student whose original creative project best demonstrates
the bravery and independence of women. The $1,000 Prize is named for
the student who was killed in 1981 while hiking in the Santa Cruz mountains.
Ellen Hansen's courageous resistance allowed her hiking companion to
escape and survive the attack. Her attacker was later identified as
the "Trailside Killer."
Ellen's father, Robert J. Hansen, a UC Davis professor of Veterinary
Medicine, established the annual award in 1986 as a tribute to his daughter,
and to encourage the creative pursuits of other women students. Ellen
was a UCD student and a talented artist, musician and poet.
