One day the institute may partner with student organizations, like the newspaper, student government, athletic teams or the diversity club. Eventually it could collaborate with nearby high schools to plan events, said Sandell.

Being a leader can mean many different things — not just holding a certain title, Genereux said. “I think it has to do with that personal growth over time,” she said.

Sandell said it’s about getting people to recognize their strengths, as well as taking initiative and encouraging resilience.

The institute will capitalize on the school’s history and position as a single-sex school, Sandell said.

“We’re lucky in some ways, in being a single-gender school, in the way the women are able to encourage the confidence of others,” Sandell said.
