• Teaching resources.

• A complete lending collection 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.

• A list of gender and women’s studies courses offered each semester, with detailed descriptions.

• 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 student representatives.
