March Forward: Celebrating the Women of Nichols

On March 1, 2015, the College will host a celebration of our female alumni. Since first joining the campus in the 1970s, women have made their indelible mark here on the Hill and beyond. From valedictorians to class presidents, team captains to campus club leaders, female students have made our community even stronger, and continue to today. At the March Forward event, planned in honor of the bicentennial, we will celebrate all that our alumnae have accomplished both as students, and as leaders in their professions and communities. We hope that all alumnae will consider joining us. Registration is required.

Announcing the IWL Student Advisory Panel

We are proud to announce the creation of our inaugural Student Advisory Panel for the Institute for Women’s Leadership (IWL), and the selection of its founding members for the 2014-15 school year. The panel of current Nichols College students will be tasked with providing IWL with guidance and feedback from the student perspective. Students wrote an essay to be considered for the panel, and were chosen for their passion around the issues of women and leadership. We are fortunate to have these distinguished and energetic students as part of our efforts.
