Archival description area
Records were kept in Women's Studies department offices before being transferred to Archives in April 2018. This box of records was assembled as being of significance to the program's history by faculty, particularly Pam Wakewich.
Scope and content
These records relate to the establishment and first years of operation of the Women's Studies program at Lakehead University. After a proposal in 1988, the first classes ran in the 1990-1991 academic year. The program developed quickly, with more courses added and cross-listed, and Women's Studies was granted status as a Department in 2002.
The records, most of which date 1990-1996, include minutes of the Women's Studies Advisory Committee, and correspondence about the program and its courses. Some files also relate to fundraising, and local events and issues.
Immediate source of acquisition
Files have been rearranged roughly chronologically to support research. Some material related to hiring and individual students has been removed.
