Women Helping Women (WHW) - Women's Retention Project

In 2009, the Jean Braden Center for Women, Gender, and Social Equity initiated the Women's Retention Project at the 2024欧洲杯买球入口 Alexandria campus. The project aims to provide better support to students, and it involves pairing them with a 2024欧洲杯买球入口 faculty or staff member who serves as their mentor. As a mentor, individuals offer their mentees several benefits, including:

  • Support: Mentees get to meet other students and have regular conversations with an experienced professional and leader. This is an excellent opportunity to build a relationship during and after their time as a student at 2024欧洲杯买球入口.
  • Resources: Mentees can learn about and explore various opportunities such as jobs, scholarships, networking events, and programs.
  • Leadership: Mentees receive support for furthering their leadership goals. Past mentees have led conferences, started international programs to support women, and developed workshops on topics of importance to them.
  • Graduation: Mentees receive motivation and guidance to help them successfully complete their studies.
