Introducing ohiowomen, formerly Women in Philanthropy
Welcome to ohiowomen! An initiative designed to celebrate, inform and engage Ohio University women – students, alumnae, faculty and friends. Evolving from Women in Philanthropy (WIP), ohiowomen brings you news, events and opportunities to become involved with students, faculty and programs.

"WIP was founded on the belief that women have made and will continue to make a significant impact on educational excellence at Ohio University," said Ann Brown, assistant director of special initiatives for University Advancement.

Why ohiowomen? Since Margaret Boyd became the University's first alumna in 1873, nearly 130,000 women have earned OHIO degrees. Read more about how you can add to the story!
