Year of Norbertine Women – Ever Ancient, Ever New

Join the Center for Norbertine Studies, in collaboration with the Cassandra Voss Center, for a year-long celebration highlighting Norbertine women past and present. This collaborative partnership aligns with the campus-wide theme of “Ever Ancient, Ever New”, as well as the Cassandra Voss Center's 2019-2020 theme of “UnInvisible”.

Celebrating Norbertine Women
Women played a role in the formative years of the Norbertine order, and continue to do so today. By shining a light on these powerful and inspiring women, together we can honor their contributions and achievements.

Each month

Monthly Unveiling
Each month during the academic year, a new Norbertine woman will be featured. Six different Norbertine women from the 12th to the 21st century will be highlighted. Each played an important role in the order’s history and future.

In addition to information on each month’s Norbertine woman, stop by the Center for Norbertine Studies (Mulva Library, 2nd floor) to get your “collectibles” (special commemorative items) for each of the featured stories.
