The Women in Non-Traditional Career Awards (WIN) are designed to celebrate, acknowledge and validate the successes of our students, instructors and administration working and studying in non-traditional program areas.
The goal of the WIN awards is to inspire all women to seek pathways that lead to their success and open the doors of opportunity in all careers.
