About Us

Founded in 1971 by a group of eleven strong women united in purpose, the Women's Commission is committed to:

- encouraging a general awareness of women's needs and interests
- developing educational opportunities about issues confronting women

The Commission has worked hard to create positive sustainable change for the status of women on campus in years past, such as that of establishing a day care facility on campus and starting the long standing tradition of Take our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.

Moving into the new century, an active and very dynamic group of volunteers, the Commission has since focused on transforming lives through creating educational opportunities bringing students, faculty and staff together to learn about women’s needs and interests. Past events have included Get Out the Vote’s: Decoding the Ballot, Zeta Tau Alpha’s Breast Cancer Awareness Week, and a lunch and learn focused on the Family and Medical Leave Act.

To learn more about the Women’s Commission and stay up-to-date on events please visit our Get Connected page. Membership is free and open to women and men alike. The only requirement is that you are affiliated with the University - whether you are a student, administrator, staff, or faculty member. It is a great way to meet people, learn and give back to our local community.
