Women's History Month

Celebrate Women's History Month at Phoenix College

Phoenix College Women are Making History!

Faculty, including many award-winning female instructors, continue the 102-year tradition of educating women leaders in the Valley of the Sun. 
Notable alumnae include former Governor Rose Mofford, retired chief justice of the Arizona Supreme Court, Hon. Rebecca White Berch, award-winning author Stella Pope Duarte, and world champion soccer player, Jessica McDonald.   
Dr. Myrna Harrison became PC's first female president in 1989, followed by many more—including the college's first Hispanic president, Dr. Corina Gardea.
Over the decades, more women have chosen higher education as the pathway to pursue their dreams. Today, PC students who identify as female encompass over 60% of the student population. With an eye toward equity, President Dr. Kimberly Britt is ensuring the core values that have fostered the college's unique and inviting aura will live on into a second century.  

This March, come to the table as we discuss issues important to women, and their allies.
