Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi Women’s Center for Education and Service to Celebrate 10-Year Anniversary

The Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi Women’s Center for Education and Service will celebrate its 10th anniversary on Thursday, Nov. 10 from 3 to 6 p.m. with a reception and silent auction in the University Center, Lone Star Ballroom. At 4:30 p.m., all past board and staff members will be recognized.

Since January 1995, the Center has provided educational programming and referral counseling for A&M-Corpus Christi faculty, staff, and students. During that time, the Women’s Center has grown from a part-time staff that shared office space with the Faculty Senate to a full-time department dedicated group of students, staff, faculty, and community members who proactively work to enhance knowledge and awareness of gender issues at A&M-Corpus Christi. The programs and services offered by the Women’s Center have continued to grow as the Center has developed.

The Women's Center assists in the University’s efforts to create diverse, inclusive, and sensitive campus environment. The Center extends education, provides services, and promotes the development of Women's potential. It also serves as a safe haven for women to voice their concerns and a support system as they seek equity. Each year since its inception, the Center has enjoyed a growing volunteer base drawn from students, staff, faculty and members of the community. A professional director and secretary conduct the business of the Center, but decisions are made primarily by a 21-member board of directors, consisting of six students, six staff, one community member and eight faculty members.
