The Susan B. Anthony Center was founded in 1995 as “a place for the recognition of women’s current and past contributions that could provide encouragement to young women to enter nontraditional careers, strive to high level positions, and undertake leadership positions to being about change and raise awareness.”
The Center became a hub for women’s political empowerment through the First Women Project and the Women Leading Local Government Summits. Presently, under Director Kate Cerulli’s leadership, the Center is focused on serving the needs of women on campus and connecting them to community resources.
The Anthony Center’s awards honor leading women at the University of Rochester and in the wider world. At the annual Susan B. Anthony Legacy Event, we celebrate one woman’s achievements with the Susan B. Anthony Lifetime Achievement Award.
