The Leadership, Innovation, and Liberal Arts Center (LILAC) is an effort to greatly enhance the opportunities available to students for their personal and professional development.
The mission of LILAC is to prepare liberal art students to become effective, self-aware leaders in their chosen life pursuits. The preparation is rooted in experiential education. Students can explore opportunities through classes, personal and professional workshops and trainings, internships and externships, alumnae engagement, and civic engagement.
Career and Professional Development and Civic Engagement are essential functions of the Center. Career and Professional Development provides opportunities for students to maximize their liberal arts education, preparing them to make intentional decisions about their futures. Civic Engagement collaborates with community-based organizations to prepare students to be socially responsible leaders and citizens through purposeful action, reflection, and learning.
