Plan goals: Establish a center for leadership and public activity • Foster vitalized student leadership, campus life, and support services

  Jonathan Kozol, Carol Browner (top right), Angela Davis (bottom left) and Susan W. Longley '78 are among the speakers brought to campus by the Weissman Center for Leadership.
Shifting ideas about travel, environmental contaminants and health, existing and emerging human reproductive technologies, architecture and public space in the third millennium--these are a few of the topics that have been explored in the context of leadership by the College's Harriet L. and Paul M. Weissman Center for Leadership. Answering The Plan for Mount Holyoke 2003's call for the establishment of a center for leadership and public advocacy, the Weissman Center has cut a broad swath--taking a liberal arts approach to engaging the campus with a wide spectrum of pressing problems in society and providing forums for exploring ways to address them. Weissman Center programming has brought to Mount Holyoke such prominent personalities as former national security adviser Anthony Lake; Jonathan Kozol, author and children's advocate; Carol Browner, administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency; activist, scholar, writer, and teacher Angela Davis; architects Elizabeth Diller and Daniel Libeskind; New York Times science writer Gina Kolata; novelist, essayist, and critic Susan Sontag; and travel writer Pico Iyer. Also participating in Weissman Center events have been alumnae who are leaders in their fields, such as Paula R. Collins '71, founder and CEO of WDG Ventures, Inc., a prominent San Francisco real estate development firm, and former Maine state senator Susan W. Longley '78. Alumnae have come back to Mount Holyoke to shed light on issues ranging from the challenges and opportunities for women in corporate and political worlds to welfare reform and public education.
