Welcoming Space. Supportive Environment. Women’s Resource Hub.
The Women’s Center, co-directed by Jessica Headley (Assistant Professor in the Counseling and Art Therapy Department) and Amy Lechko (Associate Dean of Student Affairs), opened August 2018. The Center has a commitment to empowering and engaging students, faculty, and staff in two significant ways:
Since opening, the Center has sponsored personal and professional workshops for faculty, staff, and students on topics such as self-compassion, professional branding, and motherhood. The Center also sponsors Stars Among Us and Global Perspectives.
Stars Among Us is a speaker series that brings respected women leaders from the local community to campus to engage students in thought-provoking discussions on women’s leadership. Experiences shared by featured speakers, representing a range of backgrounds, aim to foster connection, inspiration, and change.
Global Perspectives is a bi-annual event that brings renowned speakers to campus to raise awareness about present-day social justice issues. This inspirational event aims to offer attendees opportunities to learn, reflect, and be more intentional about their service to others.
To fulfill the mission of the Center, an Advisory Board comprised of diverse faculty, staff, and students has been established. The Advisory Board serves to represent your voice on campus!
