McDaniel Women’s Leadership Circle

The McDaniel Women’s Leadership Circle (MWLC), established in 2005 as the McDaniel Women’s Leadership Network, is dedicated to supporting female students of McDaniel through scholarships, mentoring, and regular contact; linking alumnae, students, faculty, staff and friends through events that celebrate and support otoable achiements and each other; and engaging members in the life of the College today. Gifts of support from Leadership Circle members help to grow the MWLC Endowed Scholarship awarded annually to four young women (one in each class) who have demonstrated leadership potential, but who might not otherwise be able to attend the College.

The MWLC chair or co-chairs, the President’s spouse, and staff of the Office of Institutional Advancement provide overall leadership and direction for the MWLC.  An annual report to members provides updates on MWLC scholarship recipients, events held throughout the year, and recognizes those members who have make gifts to the Endowed Scholarship during the fiscal year.

Now, four outstanding students are supported through scholarships funded by the MWLC. A number of successful events were hosted that engaged alumnae and friends with the College. Our goal is to increase the amount of scholarship funds awarded to each student.
