To this end, the U.S. State Department has joined with five women’s colleges—Barnard, Bryn Mawr, Mount Holyoke, Smith and Wellesley—to start the Women in Public Service Project. The idea is to educate a new generation of global women leaders, committed to changing the way our most far-reaching challenges are framed and addressed.
This is the State Department's first effort to tap the power of women’s liberal arts colleges. But it makes me think, isn’t it time for all our higher-education institutions see themselves, to some extent, as also being colleges for women?
Whether 50 percent of your students are women or 100 percent are, every college and university should have as a priority an investment in the leadership potential of women everywhere.
