Celebrating Our Legacy 

Franklin & Marshall is celebrating a year of milestones in the 2019-20 academic year. The institution will mark 50 years of coeducation, the 50th anniversary of the black student protest at F&M, the 100th anniversary of the Department of Spanish at F&M, the opening of the Susan and Benjamin Winter Visual Arts Center, and the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which gave American women the right to vote.

Check back over the course of this academic year to find more stories about F&M's Gamechangers. If you would like any additional information or to suggest an event, please contact Associate Dean Kim Armstrong at kim.armstrong@fandm.edu.

We hope you will join us in celebrating individuals who are at the forefront of change, as well as those who are challenging existing paradigms. #changethegame

 

Gamechangers Events Calendar

Throughout the year, the community will come together to highlight individuals and events that have been responsible for changing the game at F&M. Several members of the faculty are also incorporating the theme into their course offerings.
