    The Ursuline College Women’s Center empowers and engages students, faculty, and staff in two significant ways:

    • The Center provides a forum for the exploration for the role of women in the 21st century society.
    • The Center provides services, resources, and referrals that address the needs of students, particularly female students, that arise when attempting to balance work, family, and school.

    Co-directed by Dr. Jessica Headley, Assistant Professor in the Counseling and Art Therapy Department, and Amy Lechko, Associate Dean of Student Affairs, the Center sponsors personal and professional workshops for faculty, staff, and students on topics such as self-compassion, professional branding, and motherhood.
