The New Leadership™ Institute

The NEW Leadership™ Institute is a one day non-partisan program in which women students will meet women leaders, learn about women in American politics, and develop and practice leadership skills through panel discussions, workshops, and hands-on projects.

NEW Leadership™ was a program developed by the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers to educate, empower, and encourage college women to become politically active and to take on leadership roles. 

The Campus NEW Leadership™ curriculum seeks to:

  • Inform students about women's historical and contemporary contributions to American politics.
  • Inspire new leaders by connecting students with compelling, local women leaders who make a difference in the public sphere.
  • Encourage students to respectfully discuss of issues of diversity and the challenges of leadership in a diverse society.
  • Empower college women by introducing them to the tools and resources they need to understand and develop their own leadership potential.

No Cost to Students!

The New Leadership™ Institute is supported by a grant from The Women’s Funding Alliance and the Everett Community College Foundation. 


The New Leadership™ Institute is open to women students enrolled at Everett Community College for the 2017-2018 academic year. We strongly encourage women of color and of nontraditional age to apply.
