Our mission is to foster the development of women students of color as leaders in the classroom, on The Ohio State University campus, and in their local and/or global communities.
In an effort to prepare the “whole” student leader, LIWOC's approach is 4 prong:
to offer access to leadership training
to assist in the broadening of networks
to offer enrichment activities that increase retention and graduation
to ensure access to and engagement in high impact practices
