Women in Leadership and Service

Women in Leadership and Service was launched in 2009 to inspire, educate, and empower women to make a positive impact on future generations of women at West Chester University. Through philanthropy and networking, Women in Leadership and Service will encourage individuals of all generations to become active in the lives of today's WCU women.
