Women’s History Month (WHM) events are designed to address the campus and district’s commitment to cultural proficiency by joining the nation to celebrate, learn about and reflect upon contributions and achievements of women. The national theme is “Generations of Women Moving History Forward.” All of the events are educational and free to the campus community and public. We plan to disseminate information through email notices, a calendar of events, posters, flyers, community contacts, and press releases. Members of the planning committee will be present at each event to gather comments and document the number in attendance. In addition, the planning committee will meet, debrief, and evaluate the activities and effectiveness in preparation for 2008.
Within the Cultural Competence Plan, the events meet Strategy Area 3 (Creating a Campus Climate that Respects and Welcomes Diversity), Goal 3.2 (Enhance Campus Climate, Activity 3.2.5 (Continue to improve and strengthen and coordinate the cultural celebrations/events and activities which occur on campus)
