Tell us your story

How has CEW been a part of your life?

For the past fifty years, we at CEW have had the privilege to meet and serve thousands of women and men via scholarships, counseling, advanced leadership training and other programs. Time and again, our visitors have told us how CEW helped and supported them in their careers and professional, educational, and personal lives.

We are excited to announce the beginning of a new project dedicated to sharing these stories and celebrating our relationships with faculty, staff and students at the University of Michigan and the rest of the CEW family. Not only will these stories be featured on a special section of the CEW website and as part of our upcoming 50th anniversary celebration, they will also be archived and used in the future to demonstrate CEW's influence.

Do you have a CEW story to share? Whether you came in for counseling, a critical difference or research grant, a scholarship, or to attend one of our programs, we hope you’ll take a moment to let us know what that experience meant to you.

One way for you to tell your story is to complete the following questions about your CEW experience and submit your response to us. If you prefer, we'd love the opportunity to speak with you in person, either by phone or in a face-to-face conversation. Please contact Eilisha Dermont at or 734-764-6005 to learn more about those options and to arrange the details.

Do you have photos from your workplace, travels or educational experiences that you’d like to share with us? We are happy to feature your photo submissions on our website. Please submit as many as you like to
