Representative (IR) holds an essential role in connecting her home
institution with the North Carolina American Council on Education
Women’s Network. The IR actively supports women’s leadership and
advancement at her own institution through advocacy, sponsorship, and
development of women as leaders, including creating opportunities for
women to lead and building a campus network for women. The IR also
serves as the liaison between women at her institution and the state
network and is responsible for disseminating information from the
network to her campus and from her campus to the state network.
Each institutional member should identify one or two IRs for their
campus. IRs are usually appointed by the president or chancellor of the
institution, with the responsibility offered to women who have already
demonstrated support for women’s leadership.
