When We Empower Women...

She does not just change her herself — she changes her household, she changes her community, and it’s possible she changes the world.

AAUW’s National Conference for College Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL) is where hundreds of young women come to turn a moment into a movement. Each year, we bring together hundreds of college women from around the country for three days of leadership training, inspiration and networking. Enter the conference as a passionate leader and leave it with the skills and confidence to pursue your goals.

NCCWSL has grown rapidly since its founding more than three decades ago, attracting over 10,000 student leaders. In 2019 the conference brought together 800 attendees representing 48 states and over 300 colleges and universities. The diversity of backgrounds and ideas at NCCWSL is part of what makes it such a transformative experience. The workshops, panels, speakers and activities provide endless opportunities to learn from experts, while peer networking allows you to learn from one another and make lifelong connections.
