The Alverno College Research Center on Women was established in April 1970 through the work of Sr. Austin Doherty, then Chair of the Psychology Department; Barbara Mulligan, Director of the Continuing Education Division (a precursor to today's Telesis); and Victoria Hinshaw, Political Science Instructor. The RCW began its functioning conceptually as three centers--a resource center on women, a research center about women and an outreach center for women. The physical space, LA 209 no longer exists, but a group of dedicated volunteers continues to meet and is "committed to study, reflection, planning and working through institutional, departmental and community structures to implement and infuse throughout the curriculum and the community women's concerns and issues."
