Program Description:

Founded 50 years ago, the Center for the Education of Women (CEW) is dedicated to encouraging and enhancing the education and careers of adult women through programs and services, advocacy and research.  An integral part of CEW is the client-centered, integrative life counseling offered free of charge to women and men from the University and the broader community, which is supplemented by workshops, speakers and events throughout the academic year.  CEW serves as the administrative home of campus wide initiatives serving women faculty and staff of color; CEW also convenes and staffs the University-wide President’s Advisory Commission on Women’s Issues.  CEW offers approximately 40 privately funded scholarships each year to nontraditional students who have experienced a break in their education progress. Finally, CEW’s research and advocacy work provides a gendered lens by which to understand economic and social policy in Michigan through the Michigan Partners Project.
