New Weekly Social Media Series #WomenInHistoryWednesday
Last week we kicked off our new weekly social media series
This series will be displayed every Wednesday on our website, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
These women have all had a significant influence at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Starting with #150, we have Zahra Mohaghegh. Zahra joined the College of Engineering’s NPRE department in 2012. For a brief description, visit
Women featured in our weekly series are part of the 150 for 150 website Celebrating the Accomplishments of Women at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The website was created by the Gender Equity Council and the University Library highlighting women who have made significant achievements during their time at the University either as students, staff, faculty, or alumni.
