What’s Happening in SCWHE

Are you new to academia and looking for ways to connect with other scholars in or outside of your field of expertise? Need to jump-start your career and are looking for mentors to guide you? Then the annual conference is a wonderful opportunity for you! The annual conference is an outstanding way to introduce a professional faculty, staff member, or graduate student to the remarkable women that make up the South Carolina Women in Higher Education (SCWHE) and to the benefits of SCWHE participation.

SCWHE is a partner of the The American Council on Education’s Inclusive Excellence Group which provides the national direction for women’s leadership development and career advancement.

South Carolina Women in Higher Education, the official state network of the American Council on Education’s (ACE) Inclusive Excellence Group, is pleased to offer exceptionally valuable professional development opportunities to promising women employed in our higher education institutions. For over 15 years our network has used a model created by ACE to provide opportunities for professional development and networking.

The ACE Women’s Network is a national system of networks within each state, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia that work, with assistance from the American Council on Education (ACE), to advance and support women in higher education.  The state networks share a goal of developing programs that identify, develop, encourage, advance, link and support (IDEALS) women in higher education careers.

The ACE Women’s Network holds inclusion and gender equity as core values to it’s work.  Individuals who are committed to supporting and advancing women in higher education are welcome to participate in the ACE Women’s Network without regard to gender, gender identity, or gender expression.
