The WFC is an advisory group that was first organized in 2006 to address the concerns of women faculty as well as gender-specific issues across campus and beyond. The WFC supports women faculty at all stages of their careers in a variety of mentoring and networking activities. The WFC participants are committed to promoting the accomplishments of our colleagues in their research, creative work, teaching, service, and adminstration.
The Women’s Faculty Caucus represents non-tenure track, tenure-eligible and tenured women on the campus of Montana State University. We seek to:
- Provide a leadership venue for women faculty to collectively impact programs and policies that serve the intellectual interests and welfare of the members and enhance the scholarship and growth of the University community.
- Enhance the opportunities for networking among faculty women in order to facilitate professional growth and career satisfaction among faculty ranks.
- Monitor the status of women faculty on campus in terms of numbers, resources, recruitment and retention issues, and accomplishments, and develop effective means of regularly communicating this information to the administration and campus.
- Advise the MSU administration on systemic issues with disparate gender impacts for the institution as a whole.
