Accepting Applications: Tri-College NEW Leadership Development Institute

This year, 50 women will get together in early June for 5 intensive days of living and learning at North Dakota State University. The Tri-College NEW Leadership Development Institute is seeking applicants who are interested in politics, leadership, public service, or community service, and have a desire to develop their own leadership skills. Whether or not you view yourself as a leader now, if you desire to create positive change in your community, they encourage YOU to apply! Not convinced yet? See Ayah's video clip below to hear just why you should be 1 of 50 this June!


The Tri-College NEW (National Education for Women's) Leadership Development Institute will be held June 1-5, 2011 at North Dakota State University in Fargo, ND. The intensive five-day residential program is designed to provide leadership training, inspiration, and support for women in the upper Midwest who do not have extensive leadership experience. There is particular emphasis on recruiting women from groups that have typically been underrepresented voices in the political process.

Thanks to the generosity of donors, there is no cost to participate. Participants will have the option of registering for a three-credit course in Women’s Studies, Sociology, or Social Work. Those who choose to register for course credit will have to pay for the course registration expenses. In addition, some scholarships are available to assist with travel and/or childcare expenses.

For information or to apply, visit http://www.tri-college.org/new_leadership_institute/ or contact Deb White at whitede@mnstate.edu or 218-477-2041.

Applications will be accepted until March 25, 2011.


Participants attend workshops on running for office, public speaking, fundraising, public policy advocacy, and working with the media. They meet with over twenty women leaders, including state and local officials, women in tribal government, and grassroots activists. Participants and some women leaders reside on campus throughout the institute, extending learning beyond the formal daytime sessions.

We seek applicants with interest in politics, public service, or community service who desire to develop their leadership skills. They need not be college students. Approximately 50 college and community women will be accepted.
