Research Celebration named to honor Judith A. Ramaley

In 2012 the Celebration of Research and Creative Scholarship was renamed to honor Judith A. Ramaley, the 14th President of Winona State University.

Before steering her career toward administration and educational policy, Ramaley was a professor of anatomy and physiology with more than 65 articles and chapters on the control of puberty onset, stress and fertility, and the development of biological rhythms.

Ramaley has also published another 40 articles on educational reform, science, technology, engineering and mathematics education, and leading organizational change.

During her seven years as president, she regularly taught a course in biomedical ethics and established an endowment at WSU to support undergraduate research.
