March is Women’s History Month, celebrating the contributions women have made – and continue to make – to our world.



In celebration of Women’s History Month, the UC Office of Student Life is showcasing some of the amazing women who are part of the UC community. From cabinet leadership to supporting our students to coaching and mentoring student-athletes, UC is fortunate to have many women on campus with strength, creativity, ability, and more. Each week, we will showcase some of them and thank all of the women on campus who provide their energy to making us a stronger university.

Are you interested in being featured? Members of the UC community are encouraged to submit their stories to for consideration.
