The Division of Campus and Community Engagement is hosting its inaugural Women’s History Month Celebration on Wednesday, March 27, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the Main Mall. The University-wide event honors the many women of The University of Texas at Austin who have made a positive impact here on campus and in the community.

This event will feature speakers, performances, women-owned local businesses and student organizations tabling with interactive activities. View the schedule of activities.

We look forward to seeing you there—and be sure to wear your favorite shade of purple to honor Women’s History Month.
