Pre-College program for young women in the Roanoke area – rising high school juniors and seniors. Provided at no cost to participants, this residential two-week summer intensive will provide an enriching academic experience to students that highlights the depth and breadth of the liberal arts. Through a grant sponsored by The Teagle Foundation, this Knowledge For Freedom program offers students an opportunity to stay in the Hollins dorms, enjoy meals in the dining hall, take classes with college professors, and preview college life in a supportive environment. Participants will study how views on women’s agency and gender equality (d)evolved throughout the ages and how these views impact young women’s lives today.
