Historical Note

The Division of Women’s Programs was formed in 1973 and changed its name to the Women’s Resource Center (WRC) in 1992. In 1994, the WRC moved their offices into the Union and resided there for twenty-two years. In 2016, the WRC was incorporated into the new WorkLife Office at Michigan State University and moved their offices into Linton Hall.

Scope and Contents note

This collection contains flyers, reports, and assorted guides from the Women’s Program/Women’s Resource Center at Michigan State University. The flyers advertise workshops and events celebrating women’s achievements, women’s history week, breast cancer awareness week, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Other events focus on issues such as LGBT and racial concerns. There are reports outlining the minority presence at different campuses across the country, and list the minority organizations as well as the affirmative action officers. Also included are resource guides which outline activities and programs for women at MSU. There is also a video of the event, “Women Matter: Celebrating Women Achieving Excellence,” from May 1, 2002. Gwendolyn Norrell was the key note speaker and faculty and staff were honored at the event.

The Electronic Resources includes correspondence in the form of e-mail memos and attachments, and digital issues of the Wisdom, Words & Women newsletter from 2012-2016.
