Come hear the stories of the amazing women who have played a pivotal role in shaping Montana State throughout its 125-year history. Women like Una Herrick, the first Dean of Women, who taught women skills to promote their financial independence in the 1920s. Women like the group who challenged gender pay inequities in the 1970s. And today, the President’s Commission on the Status of University Women – formed by MSU’s first female president, Waded Cruzado – continues to work toward the discovery and elimination of institutional barriers to the success of women. These stories are inspiring the leaders, problem solvers, and innovators of MSU women today.
Micah McFeeley, Student Vice President of the Associated Students of Montana State University, will present the herstory of Montana State University. Micah McFeely bleeds blue and gold as Montana State University's Student Body Vice-President. Since attending a "Common Ground" retreat in her first weekend of college, Micah quickly became passionate about issues concerning her fellow Bobcats. At MSU, she has volunteered as a peer advocate to survivors of interpersonal violence, a Safe Zone Project Facilitator, Sustained Dialogue moderator, led an international student buddy program, and worked as a Resident Advisor to over 40 first-year students.
Additionaly, the program will honor "Students of Achievement"—those selected for promoting equality, demonstrating leadership abilities, excelling in school and serving as strong role models for their peers.
This event is co-sponsored by the MSU Alumni Foundation and the MSU Women's Center.
The deadline to register is Monday, March 26.
