The Women’s Center has had a busy week, attending some great events for wonderful causes. First we attended the Clothesline Project, which we hope will be a continuing tradition on our campus. There were quite a few students, staff, faculty, and whole departments that participated.
The library even did a display that provides further information on the topic.
SAS may be doing it again in the Spring, so if you were unable to attend this semester, keep checking back so you can participate next semester.
After the Clothesline Project, the Women’s Center held its annual Breast Cancer walk around campus. There were goodies in the Women Center ( cupcakes and other treats) that were awaiting us after our walk.
We want to give a big thanks to everyone who showed support and came out participated!
The AAUW or the American Association of University Women of Virginia Northern District Program is presenting this amazing talk from Dr. Catherine Hill, where she will be talking about ” challenges facing students and parents and opportunities in STEM fields, and how community colleges provide more women with a reliable path to opportunity and economic security.”
The rising cost four year institutions has created an influx in the number of students (whether they are fresh out of high school or further into their adulthood). Dr. Hill presents an pertinent study and I encourage folks to go out and attend.
Here are the details:
The talk takes place at Oakton Library and it is FREE and there will be FOOD !
