Celebrating Women's Athletics at UB

National Girls and Women in Sports Day
2009 marks the 19th annual National Girls and Women in Sports Day (NGWSD) celebration at the University at Buffalo. The Division of Athletics organizes numerous activities designed to honor our varsity female athletics teams, our competitive female club sports, women who have positively impacted UB women's athletics, and our faculty and staff who work directly with the female athletes.

Women's Work: a tribute to the women who make UB work
This exhibit focuses on the achievements that women faculty, staff, and administration have made and their contributions to the University at Buffalo over the past 100 years.

Two of the women featured in the exhibit are Betty Dimmick, Director of Women Athletics (1976-1986) and Nan Harvey, Associate Athletics Director / Senior Women's Athletic Administrator who was a vital part of the UB Athletics Department for twenty years. There is also a timeline of Women and Sport at UB from 1963-2003.

In addition to the multi-media special web exhibit, there is also a physical exhibit in the Special Collections Reading Room in 420 Capen Hall.

Women's intercollegiate athletics at the University at Buffalo began in 1963-64 when the first modern varsity team, swimming and diving, was established. Now competing at the NCAA Division I level, these recent accomplishments point to the continued success of UB's women athletes, both on the playing field and in the classroom:
