We are excited to return to Marymount University this summer for the Opening Conference. The conference is an opportunity for SHECP interns to meet, learn and prepare for the eight weeks they will spend learning and working in communities across the country.

Conference registration for faculty, staff and ambassadors is now open. REGISTER HERE before Sunday, May 26.

Interns will be lodged in the Marymount dorms. A limited number of rooms were blocked for faculty at the Hilton Arlington. The deadline has now passed for the group rate; however, if you would like to see if any rooms are still available, please call 1-800-HILTONS (445-8667) or go online. Be sure to mention that you are with the SHECP Opening Conference, Group Code: SHO. A shuttle is available from the hotel to Marymount.
