to a network designed specifically for you

The New Hampshire Women in Higher Education Leadership (NHWHEL) network is a diverse group that welcomes women at all levels and at each stage in their careers.


NHWHEL promotes women's leadership in higher education and throughout society as a whole; supports the creation of an educational, social, and political climate in which women participate equally with men in the workplace and in setting public agendas; and fosters effective partnerships with organizations that pursue shared goals.
