Women’s Circle Overview

The Women’s Circle of Salisbury University builds connections and support systems for women. This initiative moves beyond the borders of our campus to involve women community-wide in inspiring events and initiatives.  The Women’s Circle initiates endowments for students’ learning and research, and promotes new ways for women to support each other.  The Women’s Circle hosts several regular events, including professional development forums, an annual breakfast featuring student speakers, and fundraisers.
