Women Shaping a Better Tomorrow ~ Civic Engagement: Past, Present, and Future

Although we cannot gather in person this year, the Association of Alumnae has an incredible opportunity to share the rich tradition of the Colloquium with a broader audience of alumni and students through this virtual event.  We hope you will join us on October 25th as we celebrate “Women Shaping a Better Tomorrow ~ Civic Engagement:  Past, Present, and Future.”

We invite all alumni to attend this virtual event exploring how women throughout history and today remain at the forefront of civic engagement. Our panelists will discuss the role of women in developing the concept itself and examine how women continue to create the social, economic, and political models for civic engagement in the United States and around the world.
