Women’s Mentoring Network Overview

The Women’s Mentoring Network (WMN) was established in the fall of 2018 with the purpose of enabling women to connect in meaningful ways to support their goals. The WMN grew out of an initial President’s Seed Grant to support mid-career faculty women in spring 2018. Through the work of the grant, the women involved recognized a larger need across campus for all women and the vision for the WMN began to take shape.

The WMN is open to faculty and staff, and has a 3-prong framework including group events, mentoring circles, and individual mentoring. The network currently has over 200 members representing a wide range of faculty and staff across the college.

Dear Students,

Since I last wrote to you on March 17, the leadership team in Student Affairs and Campus Life has been working diligently to address the multiple issues created by the transition of the college to remote instruction. First, I want to let you know that we have been thoughtfully taking into consideration the concerns you have shared with us. While we may not be able to address them all at this time, I ask for your patience and grace as we attempt to balance the needs of our students with the need to protect the health and safety of both our campus and local communities.
