Helen and George Washburn Center for Women's Leadership

What Happens Here?

There's a leader in everyone, and for many of our students, much of that discovery begins here. Guest lecturers and outreach programs are just a few of the valuable opportunities you'll find. And for those of you interested in some history, the "house" was originally built in 1927 as a private residence for the W.F. Norman family. (The W.F. Norman Corporation is a world leader in the production of decorative tin ceilings and still operates in Nevada.) The house was purchased in 1997 by Cottey College. Under the leadership of Dr. Helen Washburn, President of Cottey College 1986-2004, the Center for Women's Leadership officially opened in October 2000.
