The Women's Leadership Program (WLP) at George Washington University is now open to applicants. You – or your female students, or even your daughter! – may be very interested in all WLP program has to offer.
What is the Women's Leadership Program? Here is a description from George Washington University:
The Elizabeth J Somers Women's Leadership Program (WLP) is a freshmen, residential, year-long, academic program. Students selected to participate in each program take two courses and a
symposium together each term, and live together in a residence hall
community on the Mount Vernon campus (in Washington, D.C.).
What do others say about it?
A previous student said, “WLP has been one of the more meaningful experiences I have had in
college. I made so many amazing friends and was able to take
challenging and interesting courses. It wasn't easy, but I came out
feeling so much more prepared for the rest of my time at GW.”
You may read other testimonials, here.
What is studied?
The students focus on one of the following areas of study:
- International Art & Culture
- Science, Health, and Medicine
- Globalization, Economics, and Business
- International Politics
Full descriptions of these areas of study are located, here.
Where can I get more information?
George Washington University's Women's Leadership Program site has all the information you may need including Faculty & Staff contact information and an application form.
I think this definitely looks like a program worth checking out for your daughter, your female students, or perhaps even for yourself.
