Female students interested in learning how to be better, more effective leaders are invited to participate in the prestigious National Education for Women leadership program this summer. Along with the Office of Student Affairs, the Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy will sponsor up to three women to attend the program.

National Education for Women (NEW) Leadership New England is a leadership training program designed to educate and empower young women and give them the skills to be part of the next generation of women leaders. NEW Leadership New England hosts its annual five-day residential program for undergraduate women at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics, on the campus of Saint Anselm College.

The program includes workshops for students to actively develop leadership skills such as public speaking and networking, as well as presentations from politically active women throughout New England. Participants will also benefit from faculty-in-residence, a group of women public leaders who serve as mentors for students throughout their stay.

As part of its investment in leadership development, the Pell Center will cover the $800 cost to attend this programĀ for up to three women from Salve Regina.

Students who are interested in applying should complete an application and submit it to Jennifer Jensen, assistant dean of students, by Monday, March 4. A panel of staff and faculty under the direction of Jim Ludes, executive director of the Pell Center, will review applications and select up to three women to put forth to the main applicant pool by the March 15 deadline.
