The Women's Leadership Institute offers University women an opportunity to grow as leaders. Each year, a group of participants meets monthly to encourage self-reflection and learn from each others' skills and experiences. Members come from supervisory, management, and administrative leadership positions throughout the University, creating a unique learning community that continues beyond the duration of the program.
Women's Leadership Institute activities begin in September and end with a June reception for current and past participants. Applications are being accepted through Friday, May 27, 2011 for the 2011-2012 program.
