Women in Public Service Program (WPSP)

The Women in Public Service Program (WPSP) recognizes the unique pasts, passions, and promise of the women. WPSP aims to inspire and empower undergraduate women at the University of Chicago to pursue careers in public service, while building a strong peer network to support each other along the way.

Every winter, WPSP runs a Leadership Institute that provides training, mentorship and support to female-identified students interested in public service. The cohort is composed of women from all years and majors at the University. We cherish the diversity of interests and skills in our cohort provides. We encourage anyone interested in issues of women’s rights and/or women’s leadership to get involved.
