PCSW calls for HERS Institute applications
The President’s Commission on the Status of Women will select up to two women to receive funding to attend the 2007–2008 HERS-New England Management Institute for Women in Higher Education Administration at Wellesley College.

The HERS-New England program is one of the most distinguished leadership development programs in the country and prepares women to move into the ranks of senior leadership through focused study in planning and fiscal management, managing in organizations, and professional development. The series of five intensive weekend programs is held on the Wellesley College campus on: Oct. 18–20; Nov. 16–17; Jan. 25–26, 2008; March 13–15, 2008; and April 25–26, 2008.

The HERS participant profile consists of women who are striving for a career in higher education as administrators, deans, tenured faculty and other top academic leadership positions. Women who are interested in gaining leadership skills, networking with other women from a variety of academic settings, and furthering their understanding of the management, legal and financial aspects of higher education are prime candidates for the HERS conference.

Deadline for submission of application materials is Friday, April 6. For more information, visit www.pcsw.emory.edu.
