Women's History Month Celebration


The Women's History Month Celebration provides a vehicle to honor women, their accomplishments and their contributions to society. The celebration, traditionally a 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 Gender Equity Award and Women's History Month Scholarship are awarded each year during this hallmark event.
