Old Main Building

The Institute for Women's Leadership will be housed on TWU's Denton campus on the second floor of Old Main, the university's first building (1903). Construction began in late 2018, with a formal opening slated for January 2020. 

The institute's three centers—Center for Student LeadershipCenter for Women in Business and Center for Women in Politics and Public Policy—will be co-located in the new institute's space.

New interactive exhibit opening in 2020

Join us in 2020 at the launch of a new high-tech interactive exhibit that chronicles the state's female political leaders. This 3,200-square-foot space will provide important online research for visitors, residents, scholars and students.

The exhibit will be designed by Richard McWalters and SBL Architecture. McWalters is the former director of museum operation at the National Geographic Museum in Washington, D.C.
