The WRRC is the first women's research center at a historically Black college and the first one to offer a women 's studies major. Over the course of its 25 year history, with sustained support from the Ford Foundation, the Center has facilitated faculty and student leadership development; collaborated with other departments/programs on and off campus to establish new courses (most recently in the sciences) that address issues of gender and race; established international linkages with universities outside the U.S. to increase their capacity to promote faculty and student development; and hosted a number of conferences that explore the lives of African and African descended women in a variety of cultural contexts.

Opportunities, Grants & Fellowships
Toni Cade Bambara Writer/Scholar/Activist Program and Collective. This unique internship/mentoring program, builds on a long tradition of black feminist scholar/activism at the College. Founded in 1985, this unique student leadership development program was renamed in 1996 in honor of the late scholar/activist Toni Cade Bambara. Bambara's writings and political activism reflected a profound understanding of the interconnections of race, gender, class, and sexuality. This program is designed to attract and help nurture committed students who are interested in becoming scholar/activists.
