The Face Of Women’s Leadership
President Meredith Woo, Sweet Briar College
“We don’t want young women to be perfect,” says President Meredith Woo. “We want them to be courageous.” Courage defines the profoundly practical women who get things done. So Sweet Briar College puts courage front and center.
Under President Woo’s leadership, Sweet Briar offers a four-year journey of challenging academics and hands-on experiences. The school’s curriculum is designed to prepare students for every role a leader has to take on—from champion of accountability and transparency to financial strategist. Students are learning firsthand what the most successful women know: how to roll up your sleeves, dig into a problem and inspire others to join you.
What happens when courage drives everything young women experience in college? Sweet Briar students will give you the answer in their rally cry: “There is nothing you cannot do.”
