The Council for Women’s Concerns of West Virginia University promotes equality of women in the academic and local communities. Founded in 1977, the Council has upheld a presence throughout the evolving response to women’s issues. The Council for Women’s Concerns has continued to sponsor conferences and activities that highlight the concerns and accomplishments of women, such as the Mary Catherine Buswell Award, and the Women of Color Luncheon during Diversity Week.
The CWC has also promoted institutional development via the Center for Women’s Studies, the Social Justice Council, the Affirmative Action Office, the Sexual Assault Prevention Program, and child-care programs.
The CWC is now accepting nominations for the 2017 Mary Catherine Buswell Award. More information about the award and the link to the nomination form can be found on here:Mary Catherine Buswell Award.
Freedom cannot be achieved unless the women have been
emancipated from all forms of oppression.
