The Alvernia University Women’s Council (AWC) was established in January of 2018 by women who are committed to empowering the female Alvernia community. The Council continues to reflect the needs and aspirations of women within the Alvernia community through its mission:
The Alvernia University Women’s Council fosters the personal and professional development of Alvernia women at all life stages, strengthens their connection to Alvernia and each other, and educates and inspires them to pursue and grow in leadership roles both in their chosen profession and greater community.
The AWC plans to spearhead numerous educational programs, create internship and job placement opportunities for students, and establish a robust mentorship program for all Alvernia women. We hope to inspire and prepare the young women of today to be leaders and visionaries in tomorrow’s workplace.
The AWC is an engaged affinity group that provides support to the women of Alvernia University by creating opportunities to connect, network and share. We look forward to meeting you at our kickoff event in the Fall of 2018!

Our only membership requirement is participation! We hope all members will be as active as their schedules allow—attending events, connecting with fellow alumnae and students and offering ideas to engage and further our mission. If you would like to contribute your time and talents to the AWC's efforts, please contact Ashley Mikulsky, staff liaison for the Alvernia University Women’s Council.
