PACWI serves as an advocate for women faculty, staff, and students at the University of South Carolina (USC Columbia and regional campuses).  PACWI assesses current policies, recommends new policies and procedures, focuses on areas that need improvement, and provides opportunities to enhance the quality of USC's campus community. 

Membership in PACWI is open to faculty, staff, and graduate students, who typically serve a three-year term. The goal is to represent a diversity of backgrounds, roles, academic disciplines, and functional areas within PACWI.

PACWI also sponsors the annual Women's Leadership Institute offered in the spring to women in all higher education institutions in South Carolina.
