Women in Academic Dentistry

Our group meets every other month to consider important issues that affect professional women in the College of Dentistry. We have included a schedule of past meetings and our mission statement. Please watch this page for announcements about future meetings and join us for our discussions.

President: Henrietta Logan


The mission of this organization is to establish an informal network, which will further the following aims:

  • Promote an environment in which women faculty can achieve academic success and personal fulfillment.
  • Lessen the sense of academic isolation through sharing of common concerns.
  • Foster mentoring between senior faculty women and junior faculty women and between faculty and students.
  • Facilitate interaction among women faculty and other women professional and community leaders. Promote diversity within the faculty by hiring additional qualified women and underrepresented minorities for faculty positions.
