Overview

The Young Women's Leadership Institute at Barnard takes the complex relationship between gender and leadership as its focus. Students should be curious, passionate, and willing to take risks, as they will develop action-oriented leadership plans during the session.

Reading and writing assignments, along with off-campus site visits in New York City, will all be part of students' experience. The academic foundation of the institute will focus on gender issues, social change, and leadership in the form of a morning class, either "Women's Studies 101" or "Lean In or Dig Deep: Varieties of Feminist Leadership." After morning class, students move on to full afternoons of workshops, seminars, and discussions. To apply classroom learning, students will work in small groups to design and execute a project to improve the pre-college community.
