Why did the President’s Leadership Society evolve into 1813 Society?
As a dedicated and enthusiastic community of supporters and influencers, the President’s Leadership Society set an inspiring example of leadership at the College for decades. In 2017, we rebranded as the 1813 Society to celebrate this community and enhance the possibilities of its impact on students and the world.
