In general, presidential sponsors serve as advisors and mentors to the state chairs and state planning boards. Presidential sponsors assist in many ways, including nominating women to provide leadership of the state network, attending regional and national leadership events, and providing moral support/professional guidance. They also support and develop strategies that meet the specific needs of women in higher education within the state.
