FLORENCE, AL - Three entities on the University of North Alabama campus - Community Service and Outreach, the Mitchell-West Center for Social Inclusion, and the Center for Women's Studies - are co-sponsoring the Women of Action speaker series that will kick off in September.

"The series is designed to highlight the achievements of women in the Shoals community in the areas of civic engagement, education, business, and leadership," said Dr. Andrea Hunt, the Founding Director of the Mitchell-West Center for Social Inclusion and an Associate Professor of Sociology. "We have an opportunity to help these voices be heard, and it's important that our students see the possibilities for their futures."
