Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Each October the June Anderson Center plans events to educate and promote awareness of domestic violence to the MTSU community.
What Makes You Beautiful? Campaign
The "What Makes You Beautiful? Loving Yourself Inside & Out" campaign celebrates and displays photographs of women taken by student photographers. Alongside the photos are personal responses to the question "what makes you beautiful?" Through a variety of different shots and unique replies, viewers are able to see the beauty existing in each woman.
National Women’s History Month
Mission Statement: MTSU's National Women's History Month programming recognizes, promotes, and celebrates women's contributions and causes by providing education and entertainment from a feminist perspective that emphasizes cultural transformation to achieve social justice and women's empowerment.
The National Women's History Month Committee coordinates programming each academic year in March, including a keynote speaker, featured presentations, annual events (such as the Women in Science series and the NWHM Photographic Exhibit), and the Women in the Curriculum series.
The Hallmark event of National Women’s History Month is the keynote address, offered free and open to the public. Keynote speakers in recent years have included Marlee Matlin, Angela Davis, Gloria Steinem, and Naomi Tutu.
