Women’s Leadership Institute

The Women’s Leadership Institute (WLI) at Michigan State University is a collaborative effort between MSU, alumni, professional women, and current students.

The WLI has been designed to support and empower women students with leadership aspirations. We ignite women leaders with a vision of advancing leadership equity for women globally through thought leadership, creating a sustainable community, and providing high quality programming for our students, faculty and MSU community.

Our organization has experienced tremendous growth in the past year, thanks in part to your contributions. Along with the addition of three new executive board members, the WLI student cohort has grown from 15 members to over 40 members for the 2022-23 school year. The WLI continues to develop new and unique opportunities for students to interact with these successful women leaders. 

Make a difference in these young women’s lives by empowering opportunities for future Spartan women leaders on Giving Tuesday!

  • Empowers women students with leadership aspirations through high quality programming that includes events, workshops, and scholarships.
  • Helps to connect students and professional women.
