​​​​March is National Women’s History Month and the State System is celebrating with the country and the world! We know that one month is not enough time to highlight all the women – past, present, and future – who are making a difference in their communities and the larger society.  But that won’t stop the State System and our universities from seizing this month to uplift and celebrate the diversity of phenomenal women.  Take a moment and look at what’s happening across the State System.
