In honor of Women’s History Month, The University of Memphis will host a roundtable discussion on Tuesday, March 31, 2009, at 10 a.m. in the Panhellenic Ballroom. Every year in March, the Women’s History Month Project provides an opportunity for women’s achievements to be recognized and applauded. This year’s theme for Women’s History Month is Women Taking the Lead to Save Our Planet. At the University of Memphis, several women have been taking such a lead around the campus and community.

Attendees will learn more about what women from the University of Memphis are doing to help our campus and community become more sustainable. Women from several different university departments will come together to talk about their involvement in sustainability efforts and to offer suggestions for students who want to be more involved. In additional to the discussion, several exhibits from local environmental organizations, such as Jabberblabber magazine and MLGW Recycling will be displayed.

This event is hosted by Adult and Commuter Student Services, in collaboration with the College of Education, College of Communication and Fine Arts (Journalism), and the Environmental Safety Department. The discussion will be facilitated by Dr. Barbara Mullins Nelson, professor and program coordinator for Higher and Adult Education. Other panel members include Dr. Marian Levy, Dr. Cheryl Goudie, Dr. Nancy Brannon, Katherine Miller, Beena White, Sarah Bolton, Amanda Williams and Mary Carroll.

The Adult and Commuter Student Services department provides adult/non-traditional and traditional-age commuter students with a supportive environment that promotes intellectual, social and academic growth and development through services and programs that foster lifelong learning.
