Women's Leadership Series

The University Residences Women's Leadership Series (WLS) was created as a platform for women to help women. Women living in University Residences are selected to be part of this group via a nomination process at the beginning of each fall semester. You can be nominated by a peer, faculty or staff member or even yourself.

Being part of the Women's Leadership Series will connect you not only to professional mentors but to other Boilermakers just like yourself who are seeking ways to grow professionally and to build their confidence. We are champions of empowering women striving to be bold and to take small steps that will one day lead to giant leaps.

Both WLS and Men's Leadership Series (MLS) conclude in the spring, with a join community service project in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
