Women of Impact

Each year, the Women's Commons celebrates the contributions of women across campus. Members of the campus community attend the annual Women of Impact Luncheon honoring students, faculty, staff and administrators that have positively impacted USD.

Who is a Woman of Impact?

A Woman of Impact is one who lives principles of social justice.  Through her work, activities, and relationships she supports others in finding voice, developing skills for transformation and understanding who they are called to be. Her community is not merely a place in which she exists; it is a place she actively improves.
