Core Values

Marsha's Address

Leadership * Sisterhood * Diversity * Commitment * Excellence

Our vision is to build a fellowship of women to effect positive change by empowering women students at the University of Maryland to realize their full leadership potential within our community and beyond.

Our mission is to advance and enrich the lives of women by inspiring them to follow their passions and by engaging them as community leaders and global citizens through training, development, and mentorship.

Our members comprise a diverse, cross-cultural, intergenerational community of alumnae and friends who serve as mentors, life coaches, and career advisors.We represent a wide variety of skill sets and life experiences providing an opportunity to share a broad spectrum of practical advice on professional and personal development.

Our philosophy is value-based and founded on a culture of excellence, a spirit of professionalism, and a drive for improvement. We strive to foster confidence and recognize competence in an effort to harness each woman's voice and leverage her personal narrative.

Our programming prepares students to fully engage in an evolving world.
