The Association for Women Faculty and Staff (AWFS) provides a forum for women faculty and staff to discuss relevant topics, to support women’s careers and lives, and to generate measures that serve UMSL women and the larger community.




It provides vital input to university leaders regarding decisions that affect women across campus and in the surrounding community. It identifies and advocates for women-centered action, inclusive initiatives, gender equity, and informs policy-making at the university.

If you would like to be added to the AWFS listserv, please contact Cindy Dupureur at cdup@umsl.edu.
