About Us

Our Mission Statement

The Stryker Institute fosters and cultivates the emerging leadership capabilities and educational attainment of underrepresented women.

Our History

The Stryker Institute for Leadership Development was created in 2001 through the generous gift of the Ronda E. Stryker and William D. Johnston Foundation. Ronda Stryker, an alumna of the University of Northern Colorado, envisioned her contribution to enable and empower women from under-represented groups who would benefit from additional opportunities and resources.
