The Graduate College


One of the most diverse universities in the Midwest

Adult and Women Students


The Dean of Students Office supports the retention and academic success of adult and women students through referrals to other support services on campus and in the community and special events including the Clothesline Project, the Silent Witness Exhibit, Sexual Assault Prevention Activities, the White Ribbon Campaign, and Women's History Month. Adult and women students seeking counseling should contact the Counseling Office.

The University also provides resources for women students through our Women's Studies Program. Visit their website to learn more about events and resources for women students such as the women's self-defense class, the film collection, and the Empowering Students Computer Lab. The Women's Studies Program, established in 1971, is an interdisciplinary program, with an undergraduate major and minor, designed to address knowledge and praxis from intersections of feminist, anti-racist, multicultural, global, and ecological perspectives.
