March 2023


Welcome to UVA's newest tradition, an ongoing, pan-University collaboration, honoring both the collective impact women have had on the University and the many ways UVA women are shaping the present and the future across Grounds and around the world. 

Join us as we celebrate women’s history and “pay tribute to the trailblazers from the recent and distant past for daring to envision a future for which no past precedent existed, and for building a [world] of endless possibilities for all of its women and girls.” (2021 Presidential Proclamation)

Building on recent work to commemorate milestone anniversaries of UVA’s journey to full co-education, the Women’s Center is excited to share a full slate of events offered by a wide range of offices and student organizations for this first Grounds-wide observance of Women’s History Month. 

We are pleased to offer both in-person and virtual events, free and open to all, to engage interested members of the University community wherever they are this spring.
