The President’s Council of Cornell Women (PCCW) is a group of highly accomplished alumni working to enhance the involvement of women students, faculty, staff, and alumni as leaders within Cornell University and its many communities.

It was founded in 1990 by then-President Frank H. T. Rhodes with the guiding leadership of trustees Lilyan Affinito ’53 (deceased) and Patricia Carry Stewart ’50.
