Celebrate Diversity 

A Diverse Campus Community

It’s the Raider Way to be committed to a diverse and inclusive environment where we all thrive and prosper as a campus community. At Ship, there are a number of ways in which we support and welcome everyone on board.

It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.
~ Audre Lorde

Women's History Month

March is Women's History Month, and Shippensburg University is celebrating with events coordinated by the PAGE (Pride and Gender Equity) Center. Women's History Month is recognized around the country to highlight the many contributions of women throughout the history of our society.

The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any. - Alice Walker

The following events are planned at Ship:

  • March 1: Going with the Flow: A Menstrual Equity Convo,

Ship alumni Moriah Hathaway and Dr. Claire Roden present, trivia and prizes included!
