for Women’s Leadership, Social Responsibility and Global Awareness
The Serenbetz Institute for Women’s Leadership and Social Responsibility was established in the fall of 2010 to support Cottey College’s mission to educate women so they may realize their full potential as “learners, leaders, and citizens” and named in recognition of a gift to the college by donor Thelma Serenbetz in 2014.
The vision of the Institute is to be known as one of the nation’s premier women’s leadership programs through focused research, innovative instruction, and life-long mentorship that equips Cottey graduates to make a responsible difference globally.
Presently, the institute features an annual distinguished speakers’ series and publishes a quarterly online newsletter with a focus on supporting student leadership experiential learning opportunities.
