Institute for Women’s Leadership (IWL)
Through campus initiatives, community connections, research analysis, and thought leadership, IWL focuses on the issues and challenges impacting women in business. IWL’s mission is to develop the leadership potential of our female students, and to serve as a resource and authoritative voice on women’s leadership for the community at large. Opportunities for students include interacting with visiting professionals, attending conferences and events, hearing guest speakers, volunteering, and internships.
IWL was created in 2013 under the direction of President Susan Engelkemeyer and the Board of Trustees, in recognition of the unique leadership potential that exists within all of our students, and the importance of the rapidly changing workplace to both current and future leaders.
