Program Description

The 2016 Women’s Leadership Institute will return to the West Coast and be at Dana Point, Calif., Dec. 6–9. Now in its 11th year, the Women’s Leadership Institute continues to provide an experience that caters to women’s needs within the higher education profession. Representing the profession will be women from facilities and operations, administration, auxiliary services, student affairs, recreation, and libraries who aspire to be senior leaders in higher education and share a passion for the profession.

The Women's Leadership Institute has been underwritten by American Campus Communities, TIAA-CREF, and the Spelman & Johnson Group for many years. They are recognized as founding sponsors of the program.

Learning Outcomes

The Women's Leadership Institute is an experience that provides professional development opportunities on issues that affect women within the higher education community. Attendees are women who represent the many functional areas on campus who aspire to be senior leaders in higher education and share a passion for the field.

Leadership development and positioning continue to be concerns for women in society in general and is a focus for the development of the next generation of leaders in higher education. Research shows that while the gap may be narrowing, pay and promotion disparity continue to be problems for women working on campus.

The Women's Leadership Institute's mission is to bring together women who represent the vast communities across institutions of higher education. It provides a special opportunity to learn not just about leadership skills but about how other parts of the campus function, what their priorities and challenges are, and how to bridge the communication gap that may exist when we try to work across campus cultures.

The Women's Leadership Institute is a four-day/three-night development opportunity with two primary purposes:

  • To give women in higher education information, education, and support in the pursuit of executive leadership positions on campus.
  • To increase the knowledge base of individual participants and partner organizations about topics related to being a woman working on college campuses.
