The Stennis Center for Public Service is a proud co-producer, in partnership with Mississippi University for Women, of the Mississippi NEW Leadership program. National Education for Women’s Leadership (NEW Leadership) was developed in the 1990s by the Center for American Women and Politics (CAWP) at Rutgers University to educate and encourage the next generation of women leaders. NEW Leadership stresses political participation as a way to make a difference in a community and teaches concrete skills needed to be politically effective. The NEW Leadership program now operates on 17 college campuses across America, including Mississippi University for Women.
The admissions process is competitive, and there is no fee to participate. The deadline to apply for consideration is March 31, 2017, and the application can be found here.
