CWAH Mission

Center for Women in the Arts and Humanities
A university-wide unit reporting to the Associate Vice President for Strategic Initiatives under the auspices of the Office of the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs, and a consortium member of the Institute for Women's Leadership, at
Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.

The mission of the Center for Women in the Arts and Humanities (CWAH) is to recognize, advance, and document the intellectual, aesthetic, and cultural contributions of diverse communities of women in the arts and humanities.

To accomplish this goal, CWAH engages in university and community partnerships to present exhibitions, classes, public programs, sponsored research, documentation and interdisciplinary projects encompassing the intersection of gender studies with the arts and humanities, and the creative and intellectual production of women in all arts and humanities fields across geographic, cultural, economic, and generational boundaries. The Center for Women in the Arts and Humanities serves university, local, national, and global audiences.



The Center for Women in the Arts and Humanities (CWAH) is committed to bringing high quality educational and cultural opportunities to diverse global, national, regional, state, and university audiences. The CWAH is dedicated to affording complete access to all and does not discriminate on the basis of disability in employment, programming or accessing CWAH resources. CWAH makes every effort to accommodate requests for services in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), as required by Section 35.107 of the U.S. Department of Justice regulations, and to coordinate compliance with Sections 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Upon request and with due notice, the CWAH will attempt to make additional accommodations as needed unless the accommodation would impose an undue hardship.
