We help leaders become legacy builders

The women and men of the Women's Philanthropy Leadership Council are extraordinary leaders who are committed to furthering Indiana University's mission—and to helping you reach your potential.

Our Council members have different stories—some are first-generation alumnae, some are supportive spouses of IU faculty, some have rich family histories steeped in Indiana University. But they all share a love for IU.

So far the successes of the WPLC have far outnumbered the challenges. The individuals who gather around the table three times a year have been looking for leadership opportunities in this area for some time.
