Women’s History Month 2022

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 Professor Glenna Jenning's students Benjamin McKenna, Jillian Whitson, Jack Kargl, Kelsey Vonderahaar, Jojo Sattler, Allison Matis, and Natalie Yersavich.
