VWIL logo The Virginia Women’s Institute for Leadership (VWIL) is the nation’s premier collegiate leadership program for college women, unlike ROTC and the service academies. The Corps of Cadets is organized within a military structure, and this comprehensive program builds tomorrow’s leaders for military and civilian service. VWIL is Virginia’s most ethnically diverse student corps and it combines academic integrity, physical training, leadership practice, and co-curricular activities. From Wilderness Week during a cadet’s initial days at Mary Baldwin to the Change of Command ceremony that marks the culmination of the 4-year program, VWIL creates a challenging, transformative leadership experience.
