Earlier this year, I was selected to participate in the 2018 HERS Leadership Institute at the University of Denver. The Higher Education Resource Services (HERS) was founded in 1972 to help provide leadership training and opportunities for women in higher education. Since 1976, the HERS Institute has been providing summer leadership training experiences for women faculty.
Over 5,000 women faculty and staff have attended the HERS Leadership institute over the last 40 years. I am honored to be the first HERS participant from West Point, and to have attended HERS as part of the Claire Booth Luce Program for women in STEM. The two-week residential program took place from June 18-30, 2018.
