The WCC is always happy to welcome active, energetic and inspired individuals throughout the year. See below for several ways to become involved in the women's community here at Stanford, and always feel free to stop by the WCC in the Fire Truck House to say hello!
Subscribe to the WCC's Email List
The WCC-announce email list is a valuable resource to share events and opportunities at Stanford relating to women and women’s issues. As part of your membership on this list, we invite you to publicize for the groups with which you’re involved on campus. Sign up for the WCC-announce list here!
To ensure the list is beneficial to all recipients and meet our mission, all posts must support the success of women students at Stanford by providing innovative opportunities for scholarship, leadership and activism. Although we encourage you to embrace your beliefs and we value posts from all sides of every issue, please use your best judgment in posting about topics that are appropriate and relevant for the Women’s Community Center subscribers. Here are a few specific guidelines to follow before posting to the list:
- All posts must relate to scholarship, leadership or social activism.
- Post only from your @stanford.edu address.
- Do not post more than twice about a single event. (We consider this spam.)
- Do not use offensive language or graphics in your posts.
Please know that ignoring these requests will result in your removal from the list.
Volunteer: WCC Internships & Ambassador Program
If you're an undergraduate student interested in getting involved and helping out for a few hours a week at the WCC, apply to be a WCC intern! Internships are a year-long volunteer commitment to support the work of the WCC, and they're a great opportunity to learn about Stanford and the WCC and gain relevant leadership skills with a cohort of interns. Applications are available in the fall. Click here for more information.
If you're a graduate student interested in helping out with events or getting involved, click here to learn more about programs for the graduate community and to contact the WCC Graduate Program Coordinators.
Students of all genders, identities, backgrounds, and programs are welcome to join the WCC Ambassador Program to support WCC events throughout the year and help promote our mission of scholarship, leadership, and activism. Click here to learn more & sign up!
Other ideas? Contact the WCC staff and we'll figure something out!
Work at the WCC
The Women’s Community Center hires both undergraduate and graduate students each year to plan and implement creative programming that help us meet our mission. The application and interview process takes place every spring quarter for employment the following academic year. If you have a strong interest in social justice, equity and women’s rights, we encourage you to apply. Applications available each spring. For more information, click here or contact Faith Kazmi.
