The purpose of the Women's Higher Education Leadership Summit (WHEL) is twofold: 1.) to provide higher education leaders with the tools and education to meet the challenges that they face in their workplace, 2.) to address the issues specific to women and leadership and develop women's individual leadership capacity.
Women in higher education face an array of challenges given the recent economic downturn—including maintaining high-level programs in the wake of continued budget cuts, motivating and connecting with today's generation of students, balancing the demands of work life and home life, finding time for continued personal and professional development. Join us, as we address these issues and raise your leadership capacity in this four-day, intensive leadership summit.
