The mission of the University of Delaware Women’s Caucus, which was inaugurated in Spring 2011, is to advocate for positive change on issues of concern to women at the University of Delaware. All faculty and staff of the University of Delaware who identify as women are considered to be members of the Women’s Caucus. The Caucus is governed by the membership-at-large and has a volunteer Executive Board.
