Thank you for coming to learn more about the Utah Women in Higher Education Network – University of Utah Chapter (UWHEN UofU). This group, which originally began in Spring 2017 as a partnership with the Presidential Commission on the Status of Women (PCSW), is the University of Utah's chapter of the statewide UWHEN, whose mission is to advance women’s leadership on higher education campuses.
Here at the U, our focus is on advancing women's careers, community, and leadership. Specifically, our chapter’s vision is to promote women’s career development and advancement; to encourage the leadership potential in all women at the U; and to create a community for women with all people at the U, in Utah, and beyond. To fulfill those goals, we have developed several programs and events for the U's staff and faculty. Interested in learning more?
