On March 2, the University celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Jane Kopas Women’s Center at a luncheon held on campus. The Women’s Center at the University was established in 1994 to provide a campus forum for exploring women’s issues and to address concerns of gender equality and justice.

In 2001, the Campus Women’s Center was renamed after theology and religious studies professor M. Jane Kopas, Ph.D., to recognize her numerous and diverse contributions to improving the status of women on campus and in the greater Scranton community. The Center continues to focus on advancing gender equity through education, awareness, and advocacy.
