Advocate, Encourage, Support, Educate
The June Anderson Center for Women and Nontraditional Students provides student support services conducive to learning and personal development for all students on female-centered topics. We also serve adult students who generally work full time, are married, have children, and other adult responsibilities beyond their college experiences.
The center provides information and referrals about all aspects of academic and social life in person or by phone in the office, via email, or through the convenient web pages that students can access 24 hours a day.
The center sponsors a nontraditional student honor society and offers many varied programs that function as a support system for all students. The center conducts learning opportunities to enhance self-esteem, intellectual growth, leadership development, to discuss gender issues, and to appreciate diversity, so that students may experience academic success, retention, and graduation.
The center also develops collaborations and partnerships within the University and
with public and private sectors to serve the needs of students.
