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.

LILAC also offers dedicated programming to connect students with alumnae/i and guests about career pursuits, preparation for internships, externships, community engagement,  and careers as well as intensives focused on both personal and professional development.
