CWGE Ambassadors


Students are a valued and important part of the Grand Valley State University Center for Women and Gender Equity. Therefore, the Ambassador program was created to build a connection to students who want to further the mission of the Center for Women and Gender Equity as well as their own leadership.

The Center for Women and Gender Equity Ambassador Program offers students who are interested in making a difference an opportunity to explore leadership through service, activism, and discussion. The Ambassador program is based on a Feminist Leadership for Social Change curriculum with the goal of empowering women leaders through activism and community engagement!
