Cumberland University

Women's Council



The Women’s Council for Leadership, founded in 2006, is almost entirely composed of volunteers – women who represent a broad spectrum of the local business community and hope to aid Cumberland University’s female students as they prepare to make the transition from college to career.

"The Council will teach female students how to be leaders, how to be productive and how to become their own person.  It’s about empowering female students through mentorship. They’ll learn how to network and how to dress for success, and they’ll be able to look to experienced, professional women for guidance.”
