Women's Plaza of Honor

Archway of the Women's PlazaThe Women's Plaza of Honor is a warm, inviting and meditative gathering place located on the campus of the University of Arizona in an area west of Centennial Hall and east of the Arizona State Museum building and the Haury building. Its unique design of plants, lighting and water intermingles with archways, benches and sculptural elements to represent the stages of a woman's life.

The Women’s Plaza of Honor publicly and permanently celebrates women who have made significant contributions to the history of Arizona or have enriched the lives of others. The Plaza offers alumni, employees and students of the University of Arizona, members of the community, and people everywhere the opportunity to commemorate these outstanding women.
