Welcome from the Chair

I would like to welcome you to the University System of Maryland (USM) Women's Forum website. The purpose of the Women's Forum is to bring together women of the University System of Maryland in order to promote professional growth, empowerment, and enable all women of the USM to achieve their goals.

Each year the Women's Forum strengthens its mission by making a variety of opportunities available to our diverse community of students, faculty, and staff. I would invite you to take advantage of these opportunities which include scholarships, research awards, professional growth awards, and the option to attend conferences and other events geared toward inspiring/motivating participants and promoting professional growth. The Women's Forum encourages participation and values the diversity of all communities of women within the System.

Thank you for visiting Women's Forum website. 

Best regards,

Aphrodite M. Bodycomb, MBA
