The Coalition for Women Students (CWS) was formed in 1912 as the Association for Women Students (AWS). The term “coalition” was adopted in the fall of 1993 to express a common vision for the student groups involved.

The Coalition for Women Students appreciates the support of the student body. Many of our organizations, programs, events, and retreats are due largely to the support of the Services and Activities Fees (S&A Fees).  Thank you!

Currently, CWS is comprised of eight groups: The Association for Pacific and Asian Women, Black Women's Caucus, Men for Social Change, Mujeres Unidas, Native American Women's Association, Planned Parenthood Generation Action, the Queer Intersections Alliance, and the YWCA of WSU.

CWS also funds the Cougar Safe Rides program, which offers all community members a safe ride home at night during the school year. 

For more information contact the CWS Chair by email at cws.rso@wsu.edu or call 509-335-7118.
