UNC Charlotte’s Women’s History Month programs will showcase and discuss the many issues facing women throughout history. Sponsored by the Multicultural Resource Center (MRC), the programs are free and open to the public.
"Women’s experiences are very complex, and the issues for women intersect with a lot of other communities," said Joshua Burford, assistant director for sexual / gender diversity for the MRC. "We wanted to expand the conversation to talk about women and their allies from both a contemporary and historical context."

The Graduate School is accepting applications for the 2014-15 Graduate Life Fellows program. Each GLF receives a $5,000 award for his or her contributions to the UNC Charlotte graduate student community during his or her entire year of service.
According to Graduate School officials, the mission of the Graduate Life Fellows (GLFs) is to help build a sense of community within the graduate student population. Coordinating activities and events on or near campus that foster diverse social and academic engagement is one of the most effective strategies used by the GLFs. They also work with incoming graduate students as mentors, offering guidance and first-hand experience with the UNC Charlotte academic system. The GLF program continues to provide engaging opportunities for graduate students to give back to the local Charlotte community via philanthropic efforts.
Applications for the 2014-15 cohort of fellows will be accepted until March 10. Both master’s and doctoral full-time students are encouraged to apply.
