Women Administrators in North Carolina Higher Education (WANCHE)


Women Administrators in North Carolina Higher Education (WANCHE) is North Carolina's response to the challenge of the American Council on Education's National Identification Project (ACE/NIP) for the advancement of women in higher education administration. Operating as a network, rather than as a membership organization, WANCHE is led by the state coordinator who is appointed by the ACE director of the National Identification Project and an executive board of administrators representative of public and private two- and four-year colleges and universities. Participation in WANCHE is open to all women administrators as well as to other women and men who subscribe to its vision, mission, and goals.

As noted above, WANCHE does not require "membership." The organization has no joining fee or annual dues. Participation in the organization is voluntary; anyone who is in a leadership position or expresses an interest will automatically become an "affiliate."

WANCHE at NC State

Several women from NC State have been active with the WANCHE organization in past years. See the Women Administrators in North Carolina Higher Education (WANCHE) website if you have questions, would like to get involved, or would like to become a member.
