The Women in Business Club is one of the University’s newest recognized student organizations, and it is already offering students important educational and networking opportunities, regardless of their major or gender identity.
The University’s Women’s Leadership Council sponsored a virtual program that enabled students to learn about opportunities, challenges, and the skills that are critical for success from women who are leaders in their fields.
Check out the University's new Centennial video in which students discussed the university of the future that they envision. President Steve Kaplan shared his goal for the University - a place where he visualizes students continually challenging the University to innovate, imagine, and reinvent itself.
A new initiative at the University of New Haven, the Women’s Leadership Council brings female students and prominent women leaders together for mentorship and networking opportunities, as well as for inspiration and empowerment.
