Women’s Initiative Mission

Womens-Initative-Web-page-logo.pngThe Women’s Initiative aims to assist in the development of female identified students through engagement in workshops and activities that address academics, social and personal development, leadership, and building community. We seek to encourage authentic educational experiences that assists the University’s efforts to increase student success and retention.

A woman of NSU will excel academically, socially, and culturally. She will follow a path of excellence where she is mentored and supported by faculty, staff, alumnae, and her fellow Spartan sisters. She will graduate with leadership abilities that will distinguish her in future graduate and professional endeavors.
