Women's History Month

From charitable endeavors to awards and women’s athletics, there are plenty of opportunities for Dolphins to appreciate the amazing women JU is fortunate enough to have on campus. The month-long celebration culminates with Jacksonville University’s own Woman of the Year Award ceremony, during which JU will be doing its part to honor the many impressive accomplishments of women on our own campus. JU is proud and very lucky to have so many accomplished women on campus. Thank you for taking a moment to help us honor them.
