Dear Friends,

This year is the 25th anniversary of the Women’s Center! We’re celebrating in many ways and we invite you to join us.

There are exciting student, faculty and alumni events. The Center is distributing a new booklet to students, a guide to safety and to opportunities for leadership. Stop by the Center, pick one up and learn more from one of many student interns.

And the Center has taken on a new name! We are now the Maxine Platzer Lynn Women’s Center in honor of a wonderful woman who graduated from U.Va. in 1951, and who cares so much about students – and the University – today.

You can read about new global initiatives; reflections from former Women’s Center interns; and events, like the Zintl Leadership Award Ceremony in honor of Jane Miller, Senior Associate Athletic Director.

Explore this website for more information about programs and the 25th anniversary, and visit the Women’s Center events calendar to learn about upcoming events and activities.

I wish you the very best on this beautiful Charlottesville day!
