Student Women’s Leadership Conference and Retreat – June
The Student Women’s Leadership Conference (SWLCR) has been around since 2001 and was created in collaboration with the Sisterhood Society Student Club. The conference is a three day retreat taking place in June at a campground in New Jersey. The retreat is open to all women identified students with the goal of creating sisterhood, confidence, leadership, and community. Participants experience a variety of workshops, group work, outdoor activities, keynote speakers, and creative outlets. Those interested in participating must submit a simple application, attend a short interview and orientation meeting to be considered.
Applications and details for the retreat typically go out in May. For more information on the June 2020 Retreat check back during the spring semester for more details or visit us in Room S-340.
