Supporting students

PCCW creates learning and leadership opportunities for women students at Cornell through mentor programs, scholarships, and microgrants.

Since 1990, PCCW members have mentored thousands of Cornell women students during its annual Symposium and through university-sponsored mentoring programs. In their regional locations, PCCW members sponsor students as externs, hire summer interns, and mentor students through Cornell programs and one-on-one.

Connect with CUeLINKS

PCCW members can connect with students through Cornell’s knowledge-sharing platform, CUeLINKS. Be sure to include these keywords in your profile so students can find you when they search for a PCCW mentor: President’s Council of Cornell Women, PCCW, and mentoring.

Special initiatives

PCCW has been instrumental in bringing high-profile alumni who support women’s issues and gender equality to campus. Many PCCW members engage broadly with Cornell by continuing their Cornell leadership in other volunteer roles.

PCCW partners with Cornell’s Graduate & Professional Women’s Network (GPWomeN) on a speaker series. GPWomeN provides a unified voice for Cornell’s graduate and professional student women. The organization serves as an umbrella organization to connect, coordinate, and promote efforts across campus that promote gender equality and support graduate and professional student women at Cornell University and beyond.
