Biographical / Historical

The Tennessee Tech University Women’s Center was founded in 1993 to empower women in the student body, on the faculty, and on the staff of the University community through the dissemination of information, education and consultation. They collaborated with other areas of the University to provide a range of services and events to enhance the lives of women and men in the University community. An integral part of this group in early years was Dr. Gretta Stranger, who served as the Women’s Center Director for many years.

As of 2021, the Center continues to serve the Tennessee Tech campus community, providing resources and hosting events for the benefit of students.
