Friends of the Center
It has been over 40 years since Title IX changed the face of higher education and gave women new opportunities. However, the need for a Center to address the particular issues facing women and gender equity persists. The Center’s staff and Advisory Board meet regularly to examine current needs, issues and concerns and focus programming accordingly. It is critical to recognize the achievements of those who challenge gender barriers to achieve success, host programs to address violence prevention, and to provide special programming that encourages women to realize their potential in the classroom and workplace. In order to carry on these important programs, the Center relies on the support of the Friends of the Center. The Center's Friends support our mission through contributions of time, talent, and generosity.
Plans for the Future
There are still barriers and hurdles for women to overcome, the Center aims to confront these challenges. Private support assists the Center in administering and maintaining important projects such as the KU Women’s Hall of Fame, KU Women of Distinction Calendar, and the annual Women’s Recognition Program. We aspire to enhance the Center in scope and reach. Private support enables the Center to achieve this aspiration by utilizing KU undergraduate and graduate students as researchers, web designers, and program assistants.
