Provost's Advisory Committee on Women's Issues

The Provost’s Advisory Committee on Women’s Issues (PACWI) promotes the interests of women at the University of Oklahoma (OU), particularly women engaged in research, teaching, and administration. PACWI accomplishes this aim by:

  • Attending to issues of concern to women at OU and making suggestions about these issues to the Provost.
  • Generating opportunities for networking and community building among women at OU.
  • Celebrating the accomplishments of women at OU.
  • Communicating and collaborating with other groups concerned about gender and diversity at OU.
