Research clearly demonstrates the continued value of women’s colleges. Alumnae of women’s colleges are more likely than their peers to earn advanced degrees, become CEOs, run for elected office or own their own business. Women’s college alumnae also report higher levels of self-confidence, engagement in critical thinking and overall satisfaction with their college experiences. We have enhanced the Brenau Women’s College by raising $6.8 million for priorities that emphasize leadership and the residential experience for our female undergraduate students.
