Ithaca College will be hosting Elect Her – Campus Women Win. The American Association of University Women as well as an organization called Running Start sponsors this program to encourage young women to run for student government on their campuses. This program is a 4.5 hour workshop and hopes to encourage leadership development but also to motivate young women to enter careers in politics in the future. Even though this program is centered on women running for office, it is open to both young men and women. Specifically, we are looking for enthusiastic individuals who are looking to develop their leadership further on campus.
