"Helping Women Expand Their Horizons"

Women in Transition is an organization for non-traditional female students at Western Kentucky University. The goal of WIT is to assist its members in achieving their goal of obtaining a college degree while meeting the demands of work, family and school. The WKU Sisterhood is a group of women who also generously donated $1000.00 each to fund a worthy cause, and they awarded Women in Transition a grant of $36,850. Click here to learn more about the WKU Sisterhood and this gift to WIT.  

Members of WIT provide each other with support and encouragement. WIT also provides a room where members can go to relax, study and enjoy the company of others who are in similar situations. Membership in WIT can lead to friendships that will take you through college and beyond. We hope that you will consider becoming a member of WIT today!
