Weissman Center for Leadership and the Liberal Arts

At Mount Holyoke, leadership and the liberal arts are integrally linked. The Weissman Center for Leadership and the Liberal Arts offers dynamic programs that help students make connections between ideas developed in the classroom and purposeful engagement in the world. The center promotes dialogue on interdisciplinary topics that reflect compelling issues of the day and provides opportunities that support the leadership development of students. The Weissman Center also is home to:

  • the Speaking, Arguing, and Writing Program (SAW), a national model for strengthening students' leadership skills, including the ability to frame, articulate, and advocate positions constructively and effectively. SAW sponsors speaking and writing-intensive courses across the disciplines, from art to biology to economics to math. Intensive one-on-one mentoring is also available.

  • the Community-Based Learning Program, which enhances students' understanding of public concern and fosters their leadership, citizenship, and advocacy skills. Community-based learning brings together students, faculty, and community organizations to work on projects that provide intellectually rich experiences for students and tangible benefits to the community.
