GET INVOLVED

One of the main functions of the NC State Women’s Center is to help connect students form a community of engaged allies and leaders. We do this through our many programmatic offerings including large scale events, small group discussions, and awareness campaigns that promote gender equity and social justice. 
 
There are many ways to get involved with the Women’s Center, including becoming a trained peer-educator, participating in small group cohorts, and becoming a volunteer or intern. 

 

The INSIGHT Into Diversity HEED (Higher Education Excellence in Diversity) Award measures an institution’s level of achievement and intensity of commitment in regard to broadening diversity and inclusion on campus. NC State also received the HEED Award in 2017 and 2014.
