Heritage University is an institution founded by women and where women make up 70% of our student body; at Heritage, we are all about empowering women to make an impact in the world. 2020 is the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which guaranteed women the right to vote. To commemorate this, we are bringing a panel of women leaders from across the state for two events which will educate, inspire and raise scholarship funds for the women students at Heritage who are empowering themselves through higher education.
