Celebrating the contributions of women students and alumnae

Each year for Women’s History Month, we honor women who have made significant contributions to society throughout history. Celebrating women in science is an integral part of this special month. From Marie Curie to Mae Jemison, women have made groundbreaking scientific discoveries and advancements that have transformed our lives. We have inspiring women scientists right here in our Penn State community. Please join me in celebrating the successes and scientific contributions of these women—not only this month, but all year round.
