THE WOMEN’S LEADERSHIP PROGRAM
Learning • Living • Leading
The GW Women’s Leadership Program encourages the development of an inclusive, supportive, and collaborative community of student leaders on campus. The program fosters intellectual growth both in and out of the classroom through four distinct disciplinary cohorts. WLP students live together in Somers Hall on the Mount Vernon Campus where shared living supports academic work and students build a strong, vibrant community.
"WLP was a transformative experience for me as a person. I can't imagine where I would be without it. I developed so much professionally and personally, and the skills and connections that I got through WLP have helped me land internships, grants, and research opportunities. Aside from that, the friendships that I made will last for the rest of my life."
