Admin / Biog History In about 1986, five faculty members- including Carol Crowe-Carraco, Nancy Baird, and Catherine Ward- formed a Women's Studies Committee. In order to raise awareness for women's studies, the committee sponsored a successful series of women's studies conferences from 1987 to 1995. Women's Studies was approved as an official academic program in Potter College in 1990 and the minor was offered in 1991. The program was moved from Potter College in about 1995 and is now part of University College.
