Mission Statement

The Gettysburg College Women’s Leadership Program (WLP) develops leadership skills in women and trans-women that are relevant for the worlds of business, non-profit organizations, government, political activism, and community service. Along with the currently available opportunities for leadership at Gettysburg College, the Women’s Leadership Program will tap specifically into issues relevant to women. Furthermore, the WLP will allow for women students to come together in a nurturing space to discuss issues that particularly impact them in college and in their future careers. The WLP is an important community-building program on campus that has the potential to create lasting friendships among its participants and a broad professional network for students throughout their lives.
