Our Mission:

University Advocates for Women and Equity exists to address issues of the climate for women students, faculty, and staff at the University of St. Thomas. Resources, activities, and programs sponsored by UAWE focus on educating and reaching out to the University as a whole, women and men. UAWE’s mission focuses particularly on support and advocacy for women. UAWE members receive email communication through a designated distribution list, are involved in activities and programs of interest sponsored by the UAWE, and are eligible for nomination to the Coordinating Council.

In the myth of the Phoenix, known in many cultures, the large bird dies on a funeral pyre, only to have new life rise from its ashes. It is here a symbol of the strength of women overcoming adversity.
