St Thomas, in cooperation with the College of Arts and Sciences history and women's studies programs, the Luann Dummer Center for Women, and Veterans Services, has focused on female military veterans for the academic year 2018-2019.
In the ranks of seniors graduating this weekend, we have students who earned the Chief’s Award from the City of St. Paul for helping a woman in distress in 2014, a student who served as an ambassador on a Minnesota trade mission to Mexico, and students who have done research on everything from political cynicism to drying breadfruit. Read a roundup of the stories the Newsroom has written about Class of 2017 students since they arrived on campus.
Angela High-Pippert, associate professor of political science, reflects on how the Women’s Studies program has influenced the academic development of students, the professional development of faculty and the leadership development of women at the University of St. Thomas.
This Friday St. Thomas celebrates 20 years of the Luann Dummer Center for Women. Here is the story of the incredible woman who started it all one month before her premature death from lung cancer in 1992.
