In 1987, the U.S. Congress declared March as Women’s History Month in perpetuity, signifying our nation’s commitment to recognize the significant contributions women have made to our society. At UW-Whitewater, we endeavor to honor and respect the timeless and tireless contributions women have made to our campus. We are pleased to announce the following activities that our university community can take part in for the celebration of the month.
In March, the university will feature a pictorial project on our social media platforms and digital signs called, “I, Too, am a Warhawk”. This project will feature a diverse group of women representing students, faculty and staff. Take some time to review the statements and sentiments of your fellow Warhawks!
