Elect Her

This past Friday, the AAUW (the American Association of University Women) hosted their Elect Her event on the Alexandria Campus. Their elect her program focuses on training college women to run for student government. We had 50 students turn out for the event!

We are very proud of our students who participated, and are happy that the AAUW was able to come out and continue empower our students! Thank you for everyone who helped put this together, and to all those who participated.

Community Colleges: Affordable, Available, So What’s The Barrier?

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:
