The Women's Resource and Community Connection as a part of Owls Care Health Promotion provides a multifaceted approach to targeting the meaning & belonging, health & wellness, career preparedness, and student success of communities of women and other individuals at FAU. The WRCC helps to connect students with the services and resources they need to do their best! Click on the tabs below to learn more about what the WRCC provides to FAU students.
Florida Atlantic University and Owls Care Health Promotion in no way endorses the following resources. These lists are not intended to be comprehensive and will be periodically updated in order to best serve the FAU community.
The following is a list of websites—organized by field—to scholarships, grants, and fellowships dedicated to women students at varying levels of their education.
Every 2nd Thursday of the month we will hold Lunch and Learns from 12-1pm in Owls Care Health Promotion Classroom SS-222.
Meet new colleagues, hear from inspiring women in leadership roles and grow professionally! While our events are tailored towards women, they are open to all faculty and staff.
For more information, please contact Jill Rubin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Association of Women in Science (AWIS) is a national organization that champions the interests of women in science, technology engineering, and mathematics across all disciplines and employment sectors.
The mission and goals of the FAU AWIS Taskforce on Diversity are:
Increasing the Participation and Advancement of Women in Academic Science and Engineering Careers (ADVANCE) Florida Atlantic University's ADVANCE Institutional Transformation-Catalyst
(IT-Catalyst) program seeks to conduct self-assessment activities, such as basic data collection and analysis and the review of relevant policies and procedures, to provide the foundation necessary
to undertake institutional transformation.
The goal of the National Science foundation’s (NSF) ADVANCE program is to increase the representation and advancement of women and underrepresented minorities (URMs) in academic science and engineering careers, thereby developing a more diverse science and engineering workforce.
NSF ADVANCE is promoting a resource that is available to all graduate students and faculty through the Center for Faculty Diversity and Development. Members benefit from the online training programs and resources available that are aimed at improving work-life balance. FAU has an institutional membership for the next academic year; graduate students and faculty must register in order to access these benefits. Additionally for consistency please have the WILL tab read “Women’s Inspiration and Leadership League (WILL)” and the AWIS tab read “Association of Women in Science (AWIS)”.
