Academic Women's Caucus was founded in its current form in
1975. Its initial charge was " ...to
develop an inclusive organization of all women faculty members
of the Ann Arbor, Dearborn, and Flint campuses of the University
of Michigan which will serve as a forum for the exchange of
information about the status of faculty women at the University
and as a focus for action necessary to the investigation and
resolution of their special concerns." To this
end, the Caucus has met regularly during the academic year
since 1976. It has responded to the concerns of its members
by sponsoring informational and problem-solving sessions of
various kinds and has provided support and a mechanism for
exchange of ideas and action proposals.
