A New Center for Women in Business to Be Established at Texas Woman’s University

TWULogoTexas Woman’s University in Denton has announced plans to establish the Center for Women in Business. The new center will be the first of its kind in the region and will provide leadership opportunities to encourage and support women’s business ownership and success. The Center for Women in Business will provide students and entrepreneurs access to education in business creation and ownership, engagement and mentorship with role models who already own their own businesses, and opportunities to engage in a learning lab that explores the intersection of gender and entrepreneurial leadership. Funding for the center will be aided by a $2.2 million grant from the state of Texas.

Carine-MFeytenCarine M. Feyten, chancellor of Texas Woman’s University, stated that “we believe that women-owned businesses are an economic resource yet to be fully developed, and that TWU, which is the nation’s largest university primarily for women, is well positioned to be at the forefront in making a difference in the lives of so many women in Texas, as well as having a huge economic impact on our state.”

Dr. Feyten holds a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in English and Dutch education from the Universite Catholique Louvain in Belgium. She earned a doctorate in interdisciplinary education and second language acquisition from the University of South Florida.
