Women in Higher Education (WiHE) is a college-wide committee at Eastern Florida State College that strives to:

  • Promote professional and personal networking opportunities
  • Share opportunities for professional growth within the College
  • Encourage females at the College who desire to pursue a next step in their career path or another graduate degree
  • Recognize female accomplishments at the College
  • Support less fortunate females in Brevard County through volunteering
  • Empower female students to pursue higher education

Mission Statement: The Women in Higher Education (WiHE) committee at EFSC supports women in higher education through professional growth, personal networking, highlighting women’s accomplishments, and serving the community through mentoring and volunteering. The committee is open to all EFSC faculty and staff.
