NATIONAL CONFERENCE FOR
COLLEGE WOMEN STUDENT LEADERS
May 29-June 1, 2019 in College Park, Maryland
PLEASE READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION:
The American Association of University Women (AAUW) is the nation’s leading voice promoting equity and education for women and girls. Since our founding in 1881, AAUW members have examined and taken positions on the fundamental issues of the day — educational, social, economic, and political.
NCCWSL was born in 1983, when representatives from national gender equity organizations saw the need for a leadership space dedicated to empowering collegiate women. Since then AAUW has taken the helm of the conference and NCCWSL has transformed into an essential experience for any woman serious about creating meaningful impact on her campus, mobilizing her community, and preparing for personal and professional success after graduation.
Since the conference’s beginnings one highlight has been our Women of Distinction Awards ceremony and reception. This event is a night to honor women who have made indelible marks in their fields and in their communities. We have awarded a legacy of trailblazing women in our three-decade history, including Emmy-winning journalist Connie Chung; NASA astronaut Mae Jemison, Ph.D.; 43rd Treasurer of the United States Rosie Rios; Olympic medalist and member of the 1996 Magnificent Seven Olympic gymnastics team Dominique Dawes; and the late civil rights activist Dorothy Height.
NCCWSL is the place to educate yourself about today’s most pressing issues, develop new leadership skills while expanding on the skills in your current arsenal, and make lifelong connections with peers across the country.
Challenge yourself. Inspire others. Create impact.
