Each spring, the Women’s Network at VCU issues a call for nominations for the upcoming American Council on Education Virginia Women’s Network Senior Leadership Seminar. Participants are selected by the women’s network advisory group and submitted for nomination to the Virginia network.
Individuals who display a record of leadership at VCU and the potential to contribute significantly to higher education across Virginia are encouraged to apply. Preference is given to those nominees whose career goals include advancement in higher education. We especially welcome nominations of women of color since we are committed to increasing their representation and involvement in higher education administration.
