Luann Dummer Center for Women

The Luann Dummer Center for Women (LDCW) 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. 

The LDCW is located in O'Shaughnessy Educational Center, Room 103.

LDCW Seeks Advisory Board Members

Luann Dummer Center for Women seeks applications for four openings on its Advisory Board

The advisory board, composed of faculty, staff, and students, is a decision-making body for the LDCW on matters concerning the Center’s budget, membership, programs, grant-reviews, and other important matters. The board meets five to six times during the academic year (more if necessary) and is in frequent communication with the Center’s director to assist in various ways, including the development of policy for the Center. The term is 6 years, although students serve only until their status changes.

Those interested are invited to send a statement of interest (about 1-2 pages) to the Luann Dummer Center for Women, womenscntr@stthomas.edu, no later than 4:00 pm on Friday, September 21, 2018.

Please include information on academic or professional experience with issues related to women and gender. We are looking for energetic and committed people who share the goals of the LDCW. Please view the LDCW website for its mission and programs: <http://www.stthomas.edu/ldcw/>
