The Luann Dummer Center for Women addresses the needs and aspirations of women. The Center’s educational programs, activities, and resources are available to students, faculty and staff of the university. These services foster the intellectual, spiritual and personal development of women, and promote an open and diverse environment at St. Thomas. By enhancing academic experiences and providing developmental opportunities, the Center assists women in achieving their highest potential. As the Center fulfills this purpose, it contributes to the entire campus community. The Luann Dummer Center for Women was established in 1993 by a special bequest from Dr. Luann Dummer's estate and is located in O'Shaughnessy Educational Center, Room 103.
