About IWL

The  Susan West Engelkemeyer Institute for Women’s Leadership (IWL) at Nichols College was founded in 2013.   Developing intelligent, ethical leaders of tomorrow has long been the driving purpose of Nichols College. The IWL is now an integral part of that goal in recognizing the unique leadership potential within each of our female students.

The vision of the IWL:

Empower and Inspire women to reach their optimal potential to become successful, equal leaders in the classroom, business, and society.

We invite students, staff, faculty, and community members to join us in our vision and conversations about women and leadership. Comment on our blog, follow us on Twitter, read what women leaders have to say, and learn about the state of women’s leadership. The IWL will also host periodic events, which will be posted here. And, of course, contact us anytime with comments or suggestions.
