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."

UNC Charlotte alumna Casey Rimland recently was named a Gates Cambridge Scholar and will begin study toward a doctorate in surgery at the University of Cambridge in the fall.
Rimland completed a bachelor’s degree in biology and psychology from the University in May 2012 and began medical school at UNC Chapel Hill as part of an eight-year scholarship through the National Institutes of Health Oxford Cambridge Scholars Program.
The Gates Cambridge Scholarships are prestigious, highly competitive full-cost scholarships that are awarded to outstanding applicants from countries outside the United Kingdom to pursue a full-time postgraduate degree in any subject available at the University of Cambridge.
