Agency History

Formed in the early 1970s, the Women's Caucus was devoted to identifying and solving issues faced by women on a university campus. Originally only open to female faculty members, in 1976 it expanded its membership to include faculty, students and university staff of all levels. After a period of dormancy, the Women's Caucus re-emerged around 2009 as the Graduate Women's Caucus.

Scope and Content

This collection consists of subject files from the Women's Caucus. Items of study included the role of women, equal opportunity and inequalities, and Title IX. The records do not cover the later incarnation of the group as the Gradate Women's Caucus.
