Luann Dummer Center for Women

The Luann Dummer Center for Women (LDCW) addresses the needs and aspirations of women.

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.
