The University of South Alabama is a diverse and global community striving for inclusive excellence. The Cultural Awareness Collaborative at South, which includes students, faculty and staff created this calendar to build awareness and understanding of important observances and holidays of diverse campus groups.

Please share with us any widely recognized observances you would like to include on this calendar form. Your input is important. It will help ensure these observances are available as another resource for the enrichment of the campus and the greater Mobile community. All are welcome.

The University of South Alabama and the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion are collaborating with other departments and student organizations to celebrate Women’s History Month 2023, with two events that honor women’s struggles and outstanding contributions to history.

Did You Know?
Women’s History Month started as a national celebration in 1981, when Congress authorized and requested the president to proclaim the week beginning March 7, 1982, as "Women’s History Week." In 1987, after being petitioned by the National Women’s History Project, Congress declared March as "Women’s History Month.” March also serves as Gender Equality Month, which is also important to recognize.
