For Women's History Month Centenary College is adopting the National Women's History Alliance (NWHA) theme of 2022: "Women Providing Healing, Promoting Hope." As the NWHA notes, "The 2022 theme proudly honors those who, in both public and private life, provide healing and promote hope for the betterment of all." This theme aligns closely with Centenary College's commitment to pursuing knowledge, fostering compassion, and cultivating personal and collective responsibility.
