Women's History Month

March 2021

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, all events for this Heritage month have been cancelled. Although unable to meet in groups, we are dedicated to celebrating the impact women have made throughout our nation. 

Women have heavily influenced and made tremendous contributions to the history and achievements of the United States. For the duration of the month of March, we celebrate these individuals and the contributions they have made to our nation and Dustdevil family.

TAMIU's women deans

Becoming a Dean

At Texas A&M International University (TAMIU), the majority -- or four of the six college or school deans -- are women. Among them are mothers, a first woman Hispanic dean, and women of international origins who’ve adapted to vastly different countries and higher education systems.

Here, TAMIU’s women deans: Dr. Jennifer Coronado, Graduate School; Dr. Claudia San Miguel, College of Arts and Sciences; Dr. Marivic Torregosa, College of Nursing and Health Sciences, and Dr. Barbara Hong, University College, share their life stories and the challenges they’ve had to overcome as women to reach their positions of leadership.
