University administration funds additional positions in Women's Center
Through the Office of the Provost, the Women's Center has recently received funding for an education outreach/prevention specialist for the Gender Violence and Social Change program, as well as a full-time counselor in residence with experience in trauma. We especially thank the Women's Leadership Council - the President's Advisory Committee on women's concerns - and Marcus Martin, the Vice President for Diversity and Equity.
The Women's Center was already encouraged by the announcement from President Sullivan that the University will fund an additional Trauma Counselor at the Women’s Center. We are grateful to the students, staff, and faculty who requested these much-needed additions.
By the spring semester, with support from the Office of the Provost and the Vice President for Student Affairs, Counseling Services will be able to provide confidential groups for student survivors as well as separate groups for faculty and staff survivors.
