2019 WOMEN OF UD: TRAILBLAZERS
Dr. Natalie Hudson
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 2019 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.
