UCF Celebrates 2014 Women’s History Month

Since March of 1981, Americans everywhere have helped pay tribute to women whose commitment to humanity and to our planet have proved to be invaluable for society.  At UCF, women have been instrumental in shaping our university from its origins into the amazing institution it is presently.  We are honored and privileged to share the stories of 31 of these women with you, one for each day of the month of March.  We also invite you to check out the class of 2013 in our Women’s History Month archives. Thank you and Happy Women’s History Month!
