Commissioners and Members 2020-2021

The COSW is comprised of 30 members drawn from Wayne State University's faculty and staff, as well volunteers from the campus community and student body.  Each volunteer brings with them a different area of expertise and an enthusiasm to address the issues of equality and equity that affect University women through programming and advocacy.  If you are looking for a meaningful way to be involved and make a difference in the campus community, please consider becoming a volunteer by contacting a Chair of one of the COSW Committees that best meets your interests.
