Mission Statement: MTSU's National Women's History Month programming recognizes, promotes, and celebrates women's contributions and causes by providing education and entertainment from a feminist perspective that emphasizes cultural transformation to achieve social justice and women's empowerment.
This year we are excited to have Sheril Kirshenbaum, author of "The Science of Kissing:
What Our Lips Are Telling Us", as our keynote speaker. More information can be found
on the National Women's History Month poster.
The National Women's History Month Committee coordinates programming each academic year, including a keynote speaker, featured presentations, annual events (such as the Women in Science series and the NWHM Photographic Exhibit), and the Women in the Curriculum series.
Events are held throughout the year and announced through the NWHM calendar and flyers posted on campus, though the majority are held in March and announced via our annual NWHM Calendar. To receive a copy of the Calendar, contact the June Anderson Center office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 615-898-5812.
In addition to programming the Committee organizes, we welcome proposals for co-sponsored NWHM events or requests to add events to our Calendar. To submit a proposal, please complete a NWHM Proposal Form (see below). Proposals are evaluated in the order received, based upon their adherence to the NWHM mission statement (above), their contribution to the diversity of programming, and the availability of funds. The Committee meets several times during each Fall semester to review proposals. Specific meeting dates will be announced annually via email to all faculty, staff, and administration.
