at Centre Gallery!
As part of their dedication to reflecting the community of USF, the Centre Gallery has collaborated with the Office of Multicultural Affairs to create exhibitions in celebration of commemorative observances such as Black Heritage Month, Pride Month, and Women’s History Month. The Centre Gallery would like to exemplify the USF principles of community in all of their exhibitions, and that means embodying the core values of diversity with inclusion, and dialogue with respect. Their celebration of the diversity and awareness during these commemorative observances extends beyond a single month or exhibition, and students should feel confident in displaying their work with the Centre Gallery any time of the year.

Phyllis P. Marshall: USF’s House Mother
Phyllis P. Marshall arrived at USF in its fourth year, 1960. She was instrumental in creating student life on campus while serving as the director of USF’s student center from August 1976 until her retirement in June 1994. She was loved amongst students and many USF alumnus called her their “surrogate mother or mom.” Check out this video on the MSC website to learn more about Phyllis P. Marshall’s impact.
USF Libraries: Celebrating Women’s History Month
We here at the USF Libraries aim to bring women to light this month, to increase the visibility of the many who have made diligent efforts to create momentous change – and in doing so, made our world a fairer and more equitable place. Be on the lookout for resources and a reading list to help expand your knowledge of women in history, and Special Collection spotlights including Women in the 19th Century, the Greco Midwife Records, and local Tampa Bay Women’s Clubs.
We encourage you to take time this month to read from our resources and/or write to a woman you admire. It’s not just about celebrating women’s historical triumphs, but paying tribute to the women in our lives now, who will no doubt go on to influence our future.
