SHE Collegiate Cohorts provides a safe space that prioritizes community building and personal development. Oftentimes, safe spaces are described as a shelter from outside perspectives and philosophies, but our thought is that they are an integral component of academic support and the development of self advocacy skills. By offering workshops ranging from personal development to financial literacy, we work tirelessly to create a space where students, whether undergraduate or graduate can be met with support not only from their peers but from their professors and administrators as well. 

SHE Collegiate Cohorts serve as a safe space where young women are seen, heard and encouraged to achieve their limitless potential.

For all my women and the stories you cannot tell,

You collectively are my muse.
