International Women’s Day is celebrated each year on March 8th. This year, the Center for Diversity and Inclusion, the English Department, the Grace A. Tanner Center for Human Values, the History, Sociology, and Anthropology Department, the Leavitt Center for Politics & Public Service, the Masters of Public Administration Program, the SUU Women’s Network, and the Women and Gender Studies Program have teamed up to host a weeklong celebration.
