Women in New Roles (WINR)

This College credit program–available at Northeast, South and Southeast Campuses–is designed to assist women who are in the transition of returning to school and to provide strategies for personal and career changes. Following a semester in this program, WINR students branch into specialty areas with more confidence and direction.
