Women of UD: Trailblazers

Women of UD Exhibit

In honor of Women's History Month, the Women's Center coordinates an annual exhibit highlighting the contributions women have made at the University of Dayton community and beyond, both past and present. The exhibit features 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 honorees were nominated by the campus community and selected by a dedicated group of students, faculty, and staff.  The honorees were photographed by student Annie Denten and were brought to life in the exhibit by students Maddie Kurlandski, Natalie Martin, and Olivia Pettigrew from Dr. Kathy Kargl's graphic design class.
