Women's Education Worldwide
Speech by Lynn Pasquerella (PDF download):
Women's Education Worldwide ® (WEW) is a new organization bringing together the presidents and chief academic officers of women's colleges and universities from around the world and other leaders in women's education. The mission of WEW is to share best practices, to collect and disseminate data about women's colleges, to foster exchange among our institutions, and to advocate for women's education worldwide.
This international initiative was founded in 2003 by Mount Holyoke and Smith Colleges, two of the original "Seven Sisters" of U.S. higher education -- a group that itself has long benefitted from collaboration at the national level.
The goal of the conference is to enhance faculty exchanges across the member institutions of Women's Education Worldwide. We hope that the opportunity for our faculty members to exchange ideas with one another at the conference will result in new creative approaches to shared teaching and research. We believe this will enhance global and international components of the curriculum at our colleges with benefits for our students and faculty alike.
