Women's History Month Luncheon

A celebration of Women’s History Month, this annual luncheon provides a vehicle to celebrate women, their accomplishments and their contributions to society. The luncheon humbly began as a potluck event for faculty, staff and students at the University over thirty years ago but has since evolved into the premiere Women's History Month event in Jacksonville. Since 2014, community partners, faculty, staff and students have come together each spring to hear from globally-recognized speakers, who serve as pioneers in advancing women across the world.


The Susan B. Anthony Award and Women's History Month Scholarship are awarded each year during this hallmark event.

The Women’s History Month Luncheon is scheduled during the month of March each year and is open to the public. The 2020 Women's History Month Luncheon will occur on Wednesday, March 4.
