Womens' Leadership Academy

Who We Are

The Women's Leadership Academy is a group of LU women who focus on identifying and preparing talented women students for the workforce and future leadership roles.  Each year, a small, select group of Lincoln University students participate in a group project, mentorship program, and leadership workshops.  The Academy clarifies the concepts of leadership and assertiveness, while giving women the power to define personal priorities, goals, and dreams.
