How the Women's Faculty Caucus began

President Geoffrey Gamble and Provost David Dooley announced the formation of a steering committee to aid the faculty and the university in enhancing the opportunities for career advancement and the success, in teaching, scholarship, service and leadership of women among the faculty. Inaugural committee members were: Susan Capalbo (Director of Special Projects for Enhancing Diversity and Professor of Agricultural Economics), Lisa Graumlich (Executive Director of the Big Sky Institute and Professor of Land Resources and Environmental Sciences), and Cindy Stillwell (Associate Professor of Media and Theatre Arts). Both the President and Provost were delighted that these accomplished faculty were willing to provide leadership toward MSU's goal of establishing the kind of community where all faculty may excel.
