Welcome from the Chair

I would like to welcome you to the University System of Maryland (USM) Women's Forum
website. The purpose of the Women's Forum is to bring together the women of the
University System of Maryland in order to enhance the status of women, to foster networking
among women and to encourage the participation of women in all facets of the System. The
Women's Forum respects and values the diversity and richness of the perspectives and
experiences of all communities of women within the System.

Each year the Women's Forum strengthens its mission by making a variety of opportunities
available to our diverse community of students, faculty, and staff which I would invite you to
take advantage of.

Thank you for visiting Women's Forum website. Please contact the Executive Council
representative from your campus if you would like to learn more or want to become involved. 

Best regards,

Diane Illig, Chair
