Womens Council



The Women's Council for Development seeks to develop leadership opportunities for all URI women by offering 
  • enhanced opportunities for alumnae to interact with and act as role models for students and one another;
  • meaningful programs to generate lasting relationships with URI among students and alumnae;
  • greater participation of alumnae at all levels of University life, including fundraising;
  • an annual scholarship awarded to a female student who holds a leadership position on campus and maintains a 3.0 grade point average.

Women's Development Council members are URI alumnae, faculty, and staff who
  • mentor students and fellow alumnae, offering work-life advice and career resources;
  • support programs by planning, sponsoring, and attending events and encouraging fellow alumnae to participate;
  • contribute financially to programs such as the annual scholarship and Council events.
