Student Board Members
The Women’s Society is now recruiting Student Board Members!
The Women’s Society of Washington University (WSWU) is an organization of women of all ages and backgrounds who support scholarships, university programs, and lectures for the benefit of the university and the St. Louis Community.
The purpose of the Women’s Society Student Board member is to provide student feedback to the Washington University Women’s Society impacting student life. The WSWU student board member will advise the board in the areas of student funded projects, Bear Necessities products, leadership awards, symposiums and scholarships.
The Board meets quarterly, in-person on various days of the week 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. and lunch is included. Student board members will have the opportunity to interact with the Women’s Society Board and other senior leaders of Washington University.
Applications to the WSWU are collected each fall. Students must be in good standing and be willing to engage in dialogue about ways to improve the student experience, with the overall goal of improving engagement of WS with our students to make the student experience better for all students. The application deadline for 2023-24 is Sept. 15, 2023. Those interested in applying should submit the application found at this link.
