March is Women's History Month! Check Out Our Women and Gender Studies Blog!
Dr. Samantha Christiansen, Director of our Women's Studies Minor, would like to announce our new website which is dedicated to issues of women and gender at Marywood University. We are excited to launch this digital aspect of our community and looking forward to sharing news, events and information here.
Marywood Students Presented Research at State Capitol
Kenia Sedano (Criminal Justice), Gaetano Zarra (Criminal Justice), and Elspeth Peterson (Psychology), accompanied by Associate Professor Sociology/Criminal Justice, Dr. Brian Monahan, presented their research at the Undergraduate Research at the Capitol (URC-PA) in Harrisburg earlier this week. The students indicated "that they got so much out of the experience and really enjoyed sharing their research with a larger audience". Each noted how much more confident they were in their research after seeing how favorably their work compared to that of others (including those from more research intensive universities). They also enjoyed the chance to meet with Senator Blake, who came by with a few of his staff members to chat and take a photo.
