WVPN group


The Villanova Women’s Professional Network (VWPN) connects Villanova women, encourages their professional and personal development, and inspires them to succeed. Our programming enlightens all of our community about the issues and challenges facing women today. Led by a steering committee of faculty, staff, students, and alumnae from across campus, the VWPN wants Villanova to be known as an institution where women thrive, on our campus and beyond.


Director's Message

Cheryl Carleton

Welcome to the website for the Villanova Women’s Professional Network! The VWPN continues to grow and expand as we work to sponsor and support events that connect Villanova women and encourage their professional growth and development. I hope that you will take some time to explore the website and keep coming back as we continually update it with events. 

Please let us know of any events, topics for speakers, articles of interest for our newsletter, or speakers that you would like the Villanova Women’s Professional Network to consider. In addition, one column in our semi-annual newsletter is aimed at highlighting women of achievement, whether that achievement is for professional success or service to others or both. Please send along women you would like to see us highlight in this column.

If you know of others who would like to be informed of events who are not included on our email list please let me know so that we can include them on future correspondence.

We look forward to hearing from you. GO NOVA!


Warm Wishes,

Cheryl Carleton
Director, Villanova Women’s Professional Network
