The Women's Studies Program at Clemson was begun twenty years ago, when Dr. Judith Melton and Dr. Judith Stanton received a curriculum development grant from the Ford Foundation through the Duke-North Carolina Women's Research Center.
The first Women's Studies Course was team-taught by Drs. Melton and Stanton in the fall of 1987; the next semester the minor was developed and accepted by college and university curriculum committees. We celebrated the tenth anniversary of the program in the spring of 1997.
The Women's Studies Program is housed in the College of Architecture, Arts, and Humanities.
