CWEST Alumni Network
Cincinnati Women in Excellence and Spirit Together
Cincinnati Women in Excellence and Spirit Together (CWEST) is a women’s honorary that was established by Men of METRO in 1979.
Our organization selects new members in the fall and spring quarters who exemplify CWEST's four pillars: scholarship, spirit, sincerity and leadership. This selection process is called tapping. Each new member, a CWESTepede, receives a pin and a rose. The rose is the CWEST symbol of spirit.
During the annual red Rose Banquet, a CWEST Woman of the Year is named and CWEST also honors four undergraduate women with the Red Rose Pillar Awards.
Our mission is to:
- Promote the reconnection of CWEST members for networking and sharing UC spirit
- Support fundraising initiatives for CAN and CWEST activities
- Serve as a touchpoint to maintain a current CWEST alumni database.
We are looking for alumni to serve as members of the alumni board, and are always updating CWEST alumni contact information in our database.
