Become a “Friend”

Why  become a “friend” of the Program for the Advancement for Girls and Women in  Sport and Physical Activity (PAGWSPA)?

In the spring of 2010  the National Association for Girls and Women in Sport (NAGWS) chose the Center  for Women’s Health and Wellness (CWHW) in the School of Health and Human  Sciences (HHS) at University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) as its  university home. This new collaborative  program housed in CWHW at UNCG was named the Program for the Advancement of  Girls and Women in Sport and Physical Activity (PAGWSPA).

The goal of PAGWSPA is  to advance sport and  physical activity opportunities for all girls and women, through evidence-based scholarship and by provide continuing educational opportunities for all professionals who work with girls and women in sport and physical activity  settings. Because we are housed  in a university setting, we will continue to develop initiatives and programs  in three specific areas: scholarship,  education and service.  Through collaborative efforts with the NAGWS leadership and the stakeholders within the UNCG community and the state of North Carolina, we have begun to develop several  programs, initiatives and events to promote our collaborative mission.

By becoming a “friend”  of PAGWSPA, you become a part of our mission by supporting programs initiatives  and programs like:

  • Graduate student research/scholarship  support
  • Faculty grants to support  scholarship and research around girls, women, sport and physical activity.
  • Access to our symposium series,  “Becoming a better athlete…off the field.”
  • The Emerging Scholars Program
  • The Young Scholars Program

Also, as a friend of PAGWSPA, you  will receive our bi-annual newsletter in December and May of each academic  year, highlighting our semester work and future events.
