Advancing women’s leadership education and development opportunities are of utmost importance. Providing inspiring, transformational, and meaningful connections across backgrounds, academic disciplines, and leadership experiences can be incredibly beneficial to the student experience, while also incredibly rewarding.

Virginia Tech has grand possibilities to advance women’s leadership by gathering, engaging, connecting, inspiring, and celebrating students, university administrators/staff/faculty, university community, alumni, and friends of the community through various potential experience elements (advisory council membership, serving as a mentor, course offerings, lecture series participation, etc.).  Opportunities offered by I WILL would provide the university community (and beyond) continued mentorship and leadership for women in the spirit of Ut Prosim.
