Florida Tech has agreed to sponsor the America Council on Education’s (ACE) Women’s Network of Florida. President Dwayne McCay has offered to have Florida Tech serve as Presidential Sponsor, along with four other Florida universities.
The network is instrumental in promoting leadership development of women in public and independent colleges, universities and other higher education institutions across Florida. As a Presidential Sponsor, Florida Tech will rotate with the other sponsoring universities in holding a state conference on campus.
As part of the sponsorship, Annie Becker, senior vice president for research, has been named to the ACE Executive Board, and Lisa Steelman, senior associate dean of the College of Psychology and Liberal Arts, is now the Institutional Representative from Florida Tech.
ACE launched the Women’s Network nationally in 1977 as the National Identification Program.
