The WPU chapter of New Jersey ACE-NET has taken an aggressive approach to identifying the women who can grow from this network, developing the means to grow in our careers, encouraging us to reach for higher ground and overcome obstacles, advancing our cause at every opportunity, linking us with our colleagues in trusting, meaningful relationships that help us along our career paths, and supporting us in our efforts to become more than we ever thought we could. Since its inception in Summer 2004, the William Paterson University chapter has continued to offer events and meetings that bring women in higher education together.




The 2021 ACE-NET Period Poverty Project collected feminine hygiene products and distributed these products at local points including the WP Pioneer Pantry for students, and women and girls at OASIS. This is part of the International Period Poverty Project which speaks to and against the shame that many young girls and women feel surrounding menstruation needs. The total amount raised so far during this project is $4,765.44. This amount raised has directly helped to ensure that students, young girls, and women are being provided the hygiene products and materials that are necessary for their menstruation needs. 

ACE NET 2019 made 250 period packs for distribution at local women's shelters
