Women in Leadership and Learning (WILL)

WILL Mission

2013 WILL participants at retreat in Grailville!

WILL is a multi-year learning community comprised of both academic and co-curricular experiences designed to develop a student’s leadership over the course of her undergraduate collegiate experience. WILL’s foundation is built on the Social Change Model of Leadership Development realized through the practice of Action Research.

Participants meet every Monday and work toward the development of individual, group, and community leadership skills. Students engage in action projects in their communities and learn to incorporate feminist theory in their quest for social change.

WILL’s mission: To build a women's community of leaders, committed to social justice and activism, through co-curricular, experiential learning.
