Women's colleges are not only relevant, they are critical for the development of women leaders in all fields.


Women's colleges provide a challenging, supportive, developmentally powerful learning environment.


Where women are more engaged, they hold more leadership positions and develop higher critical thinking skills than their peers at co-educational institutions
