National Conference for College Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL)

The National Conference for College Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL) will be held at the University of Maryland from Wednesday, May 30 through Saturday, June 2, 2018.

The 2018 program is the biggest, boldest NCCWSL yet! At NCCWSL, participants will:

  • Develop and strengthen a voice, skill set, and mind-set for leadership
  • Build a professional tool kit for postgraduate life
  • Learn how, why, and when to take action and be a change maker
  • Gain a better understanding of local, national, and global issues and policies affecting women and of AAUW’s role in empowering women

AAUW Wyandotte-Downriver Foundation will sponsor three college or university Downriver students. All bus costs and registration fees will be paid. Contact Andrea Witkowski or Jackie Hector for more details. NCCWSL registration ends in April so act soon!
