Women's History: Honoring Trailblazers, Advancing Equality
This March, Michigan Technological University joins the nation in celebrating Women's History Month — a time to lift up the remarkable achievements and invaluable contributions of women throughout history and at Michigan Tech. This annual observance resonates deeply with our commitment to fostering an inclusive community where all individuals are empowered to excel.
From the University's start, women like Margaret McElhinney and Mary Louise Bunce shattered barriers, paving the way for future generations. Professor Emerita Faith A. Morrison and Former Dean of Students Gloria Melton are among the many who left a lasting impact.
Wayne Gersie, vice president for diversity and inclusion, explores the history of some of our Michigan Tech trailblazers and the significance of Women’s History Month in a new post on the Office of Diversity and Inclusion Newsblog.
