The 2014 Virginia Network Annual Conference
Leadership and Transformation
May 30, 2014
The Mason Inn at George Mason University


Each year the Virginia Network sponsors a statewide conference serving women in a wide range of roles in higher education, including graduate students. The Network has been particularly interested in identifying and developing the careers of women from diverse backgrounds and three times has focused the annual conference on critical issues for women of color.

Leadership and Transformation

The Executive Board of the Virginia Network invites you to submit a session proposal for the Annual State Conference in 2014! The program theme, Leadership and Transformation, will focus attention on the leadership role that individuals and organizations play in the lives of students, faculty, staff, administrators, parents, alumni, and community members. Conference presentations may also address the future of higher education through shifting landscapes. We welcome proposals for breakout sessions that examine the theme in teaching, administration, policy development, and any other areas that are aligned with your expertise.

The annual conference is designed for women who serve the varied and diverse institutions and agencies of higher education in the Commonwealth and provides opportunities for networking, collaboration, and sharing information about the national, state, and regional issues affecting higher education today.


The Virginia Network is affiliated with the American Council on Education and offers programs to identify women leaders, develop their leadership abilities, advance their careers, link them with other women and mentors, and support women in higher education at the national, state, and local levels.
