Women In Transition (WIT) - Higher Ed Discussion Group

The Women's Center is proud to host a monthly discussion group designed for professional women who have worked in higher education in the past and left the field, but remain interested in current student and campus issues.

The objective of the group is to support women at various stages in their careers by providing opportunities to network and stay engaged with current higher ed issues. Coordinated by volunteer Jennifer Bell, the group meets with various campus leaders to discuss their leadership roles, current issues in their respective fields, and strategies for remaining engaged. This fall, the group will meet on the following dates from 11:30PM - 1:00PM in the Women's Center, 322 Harrelson Hall: Fridays, September 20, October 11, November 15, and December 6, 2013.

If you know of any women in active job searches or simply eager to remain engaged in anticipation of a return to the field, please share this information with them. Interested participants may contact Jennifer Bell, for additional information.

Campus Climate for Interpersonal Violence Prevention: Your Opinion

The Women's Center is conducting a research study on the NC State campus climate for interpersonal violence prevention. It is seeking NC State undergraduate students to participate in a quick, online survey that should only take about 15 minutes. The deadline for completing the survey is October 17, 2013 at 5:00PM. While participation in the survey is completely voluntary and anonymous, providing us with honest views and opinions will help ensure that we have the most representative data from our students. It is important to have as much input as possible in making decisions that affect our campus community. Make sure your voice is heard!  

If you have questions about this project, please contact Dr. Ashley Simons-Rudolph. If you have any problems accessing the survey, please contact the Women's Center at Thank you in advance for helping us better understand the climate for interpersonal violence prevention and the perception of the Women's Center here at NC State.
