A Unique Opportunity for Aspiring Women Leaders 

The University of Vermont is proud to be a longtime supporter of the HERS Wellesley Institute for Women in Higher Education, an intensive professional development experience for women faculty and staff.

Professional Development for Women Interested in Higher Education Administration

Offered over the course of four weekends during the academic year, the HERS Wellesley Institute brings together a diverse group of approximately 70 women faculty and administrative leaders to share their multiple perspectives and learn under the guidance of women leaders in higher education, national organizations, government, and foundations. This program is ideal for mid-career women who aspire to careers in higher education administration.

The HERS Institute is a transformational, leadership development program for women in higher education, founded to fill leadership pipelines across the United States with dynamic women, each capable of ushering their respective institutions into a more inclusive and equitable future.

Participants are asked to share their vision of leadership and what they hope to contribute to their respective institutions, and are then challenged to develop the skills to actualize their professional vision. As a noncompetitive space, participants are also encouraged to champion the growth of other participants. Alumnae of the HERS Institute emerge better-skilled and more confident in leading with their unique voice, providing a much-needed infusion of bold, new leadership to their respective institutions.
