We forge partnerships with colleges, universities, and nonprofits, and create original programming, to extend the Agnes Irwin curricular experience — allowing our students to explore, grow, and lead in myriad ways.

Center Partnerships

We seek to create sustainable partnerships that expand opportunities for our students in an area of their interest, forging a pathway of real-world learning. We currently partner with Villanova University and the Bryn Mawr Film Institute.

Villanova University

Villanova University's School of Business co-hosts an annual business conference with our Economics class. Four professors share their expertise in Management, Supply Chain, Marketing, and Finance in a variety of business-related scenarios and simulations to provide students the opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills and receive feedback in real-time from these experts.

Bryn Mawr Film Institute

Bryn Mawr Film Institute's partnership affords students the opportunity to see films at BMFI which further their understanding of subject matter by bringing to life important texts and historical or current events.

The early and consistent cultivation of a girl’s leadership identity manifests itself in the knowledge that she not only belongs at the table, but brings her full voice there, too. Through the work of the Center, Agnes Irwin is intentional about building leadership, and creates programming and partnerships through the lens of what is best for girls.
