South Orange Campus

March is National Women's History Month and the theme for 2012 is “Women’s Education - Women’s Empowerment.”

For the past seventeen years, Seton Hall University has celebrated Women’s History Month with a conference that provides the University community an opportunity to engage in an informed dialogue on women's issues.

The conference typically includes a brunch, a keynote address and two workshop sessions. Within each session, attendees are able to select from workshops that relate to the national theme and focus on varying topics.

This year's theme, "Women's Education - Women's Empowerment," pays tribute to the valiant struggle waged by many tenacious women -- across years and across cultures -- to receive the same educational opportunities as men.

If you are interested in presenting a session at the 2012 conference, complete the session proposal form. Proposals are due no later than Wednesday, January 25. All members of the University community and the public are invited to submit a proposal.

Additional elements of the conference and month-long celebration include:

  • Selection of the University's “Woman of the Year”
  • Selection of a female undergraduate and graduate student for the “On the Shoulders We Stand” Award
  • Community service project
  • The Women's Appreciation Dinner

Look for more conference details in the coming months.
