Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience

Women Student Initiatives

Meet Gisell Jeter-Bennett, our Intercultural Specialist for Women Initiatives.

Women Student Initiatives (WSI) within the Student Life Multicultural Center (MCC) is committed to promoting gender equity by raising awareness of women’s issues, developing women’s leadership, and celebrating women who challenge, motivate, and inspire. In alignment with these goals, we offer student-focused programming to strengthen individuals and student organizations including Women’s History Month (March), Women’s Summit, Women’s Support Programming and the Women’s Leadership Cohort.

New this year is the Women's Leadership Cohort. The Women’s Student Initiatives Leadership Cohort (WSILC) is comprised of 14 selected undergraduate students committed to enhancing their personal college experience and the experience of their peers. These students have a variety of majors, interests and talents. They assist in coordinating programs for the university-wide celebration of Women’s History Month. WSILC also invites all Buckeye Women to join them for Women's Center Wednesdays on the 1st & 3rd Wednesday of each month. These students participate in trainings and workshops and attend events and programs to help strengthen their skills as leaders on our campus. For updates and events follow WSILC on Twitter and Instagram @WSI_OSU.

Gisell also provides updates on events for women throughout the year in her newsletter. Click here to sign-up!
