We sponsor and co-sponsor lectures, symposia, workshops, conferences, and community-building events. We offer:

• A lending library with books and films, as well as senior theses and magazines, open daily for browsing or studying

• An events calendar of feminist/gender/women’s studies at the Claremont Colleges and the surrounding area

• A list of Women’s Studies courses offered each semester, with detailed descriptions

• Monthly networking lunches for students on specific themes

• A mailing list with information about events and other opportunities to get involved

• An up-to-date list of conferences and calls for proposals and papers

The IFC Steering Committee includes one or more faculty representatives from each of the undergraduate colleges and several students representatives.
