Women of UD Exhibit

  • In honor of Women's History Month, the Women's Center has coordinated an inaugural exhibit highlighting the contributions women have made at the University of Dayton community and beyond, both past and present. The exhibit features 15 trailblazing women who embody both "firsts" who broke proverbial glass ceilings in an array of areas and fields, and those that lead the way for new initiatives, policies and practices that make our campus more inclusive and equitable. The 15 honorees were nominated and chosen by a dedicated group of students, faculty, and staff and were brought to life by students Caitlin Schneider, Meg Gramza, and Erin Butrica from Dr. Kathy Kargl's senior-level graphic design class.
