Summary Merle Catherine Chambers (LLM '84) won the Evans Award — the University’s highest alumni honor — in Denver, Colorado on March 5, 2009 at the 2009 Founders Day. Chambers is the namesake of DU’s Merle Catherine Chambers Center for the Advancement of Women. The building, which opened in 2004, houses DU’s Women’s College, the Women’s Foundation of Colorado and Higher Education Resource Services (HERS). Chambers is president of the Chambers Family Fund, which supports organizations working in early care and education, women’s economic self-sufficiency, democratic values, and arts and culture. She also founded and managed Axem Resources Inc., an oil and gas company, until its sale in 1997. First awarded in 1951, the Evans Award, named for University Founder John Evans, recognizes alumni who have demonstrated professional achievement, humanitarian service to the community and continuing interest in the University.
