The 2016 Virginia Network Annual Conference
Pursuing Worthy Dreams: Women Leaders in Higher Education
June 3, 2016
Sadler Center at The College of William & Mary



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.

Pursuing Worthy Dreams: Women Leaders in Higher Education

It is time to get excited about The Virginia Network Conference in Williamsburg, Virginia on Friday, June 3, 2016 at The Sadler Center at William & Mary. The theme of this annual conference is Pursuing Worthy Dreams: Women Leaders in Higher Education. 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. This year’s theme encourages participants to think about our own worthy dreams – dreams for our students, for our institutions, for our profession, and for ourselves as women leaders.
