In February the Mabel Smith Douglass Library will host a month long exhibit on "The Institute for Women's Leadership: Educating Young Leaders for Social Change." The exhibit will highlight the Social Action Projects, for 2000-2004, that were conducted by students in the Institute's Leadership Scholars Certificate Program . Presentations by students in the Institute's Leadership Scholars Certificate Program will coincide with the opening of this exhibit, starting at 2:00 pm on February 1st at the Douglass Library.

Participants in the Leadership Scholars Certificate Program, offered by Rutgers' Institute for Women's Leadership, explore women's leadership and contributions to social change in contexts that range from the New Jersey Legislature to domestic violence shelters; from medical research labs to human rights organizations; from corporate boardrooms to the urban classroom; and from family dining tables to legal clinics. The program engages diverse models of leadership in classroom and experiential settings. The Institute's Leadership Scholars examine how different institutions inform our understanding and practice of leadership and how they encourage — or inhibit — civic innovation.

RSVP for the exhibit opening reception by Jan.28th by calling the Institute for Women's Leadership 732- 932-1463, ext. 675, or sending an email to Kayo Denda at
