Women's Advisory Committee

Marie Campagna '74 learned to thrive in the male-dominated world of computing and analytics, but not without the counsel and support of some strong women along the way.

Campagna, a retired senior executive who spent 28 years with Accenture, recently returned the favor through a five-year major-gift commitment to ensure that women in Miami University's College of Engineering and Computing (CEC) will have similar support. The Marie Campagna CEC Women's Initiative Fund provides crucial funding that will be instrumental in enhancing the recruitment and retention of women in engineering and computing.

Campagna's desire to reverse this trend aligns with the recent formation of a CEC Women's Advisory Committee, comprised of Miami alumnae spanning more than four decades. They are laying out objectives directed at helping the college become a choice destination for women in engineering and computing. Among their goals is achieving gender balance within CEC.
