The President’s Commission for Women helps advance the study and consideration of issues that directly or indirectly concern women students, faculty and staff on the UMBC campus, and those issues that relate to equal access for women to the educational and employment opportunities at UMBC. By enhancing communication across the campus and initiating programs and activities to remove continuing societal barriers to women, the commission will, in partnership with the President, highlight UMBC’s commitment to women.
The first meeting is Wednesday, September 22, from 11:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. in Academic IV-B, room 334. Subsequent meetings will be held the third Wednesday of the month.
