Staff

While there are three professional staffers at the Women’s Center, including the Director, Coordinator, and Administrative Assistant, the operations of the Women’s Center rely heavily on student staff.

There are about 20 student staff members who work the front desk, refer visitors to resources, aid in practical services such as our umbrella check out, conduct programming, and so much more!  The staff also table to promote the Center at campus events, design and press button orders, run the library,  and maintain the empowering atmosphere of the Women’s Center.
