GETTING STARTED

Funding

At CEW+, we work to break down barriers and increase access through funding. We offer opportunities for scholarships, emergency grants, sponsorships, and more for a range of situations and life circumstances.

Career & Education Counseling

Our professionally trained and experienced counselors work within a developmental framework to help individuals consider their options, make informed choices, and both define and resolve problems, while focusing on issues of achieving their career goals and balance between, school, work, and family.

  • Setting career goals
  • Determining next steps for a position or career change
  • Resume/cover letter/application review
  • Work/life balance issues
  • Exploring professional development opportunities
  • Assistance navigating the University experience
  • Negotiation strategies

Advocacy Initiatives

Through a variety of initiatives, groups, and organizations, we lift up and make space for diverse voices.

CEW+ Annual Advocacy Symposium

CEW+ annually brings together staff, faculty, students, and community members to create change through introspection, dialogue, and action at our advocacy symposium. The goal is to give participants practical tools to better advocate for themselves and others.

Supporting the Academic Excellence of Student Caregivers

Student caregivers are some of the most focused and resourceful students on campus, as demonstrated by their ability to balance school, work, and parental responsibilities. Did you know that 26% of all college students nationwide are raising children?

This program was created to bring social activists who work on gender equity issues to CEW+. Each visit is intended to give the selected activist time for reflection, research, and/or planning related to their area of activism.
