    Student Organizations

    Students serve as coordinators and volunteers in the Warhawk Involvement Center and have the opportunity to make presentations about various issues affecting women, such as nutrition and fitness, the job market, and international women's concerns. Students involved with the Center can help organize speakers and events about topical issues. Women's and Gender Studies students also participate with the Residence Hall Association, organizing diversity activities such as "Boxes and Walls" and the "Take Back the Night" event, which addresses women's safety issues.

    Additionally, the UW-W Wellness Center & the Sexual Assault Prevention Advisory Committee advises SAVE, an organization that seeks to raise awareness about sexual assault, stalking, harassment and dating violence.
