Join Jacqueline Hodes, Professor and Coordinator of Higher Education Policy & Student Affairs Graduate Program; Meg Panichelli, Assistant Professor of Undergraduate Social Work and WCU alumna; museum director Michael A. Di Giovine and student co-curator Maddie Maychak for a thematic tour of the WCU 150 exhibition and discussion of the LGBTQIA+ experience at WCU. Since LGBTQA Services was founded at West Chester State College in 1975 as a precursor to today’s Center for Trans and Queer Advocacy, the University has worked to create an environment where the intersectional experiences of trans and queer people are celebrated, supported, validated and affirmed. Through artwork and artifacts on display in the WCU 150 exhibition, we will explore the struggles and affirming experiences of the LGBTQIA+ community and advocates at WCU.

Lisa Huebner, Professor of Women’s & Gender Studies and Past Chair of the President’s Commission on the Status of Women; Tess Benser (they/them), Assistant Director of Outreach & Engagement, Center for Women & Gender Equity; and Joan Woolfrey, Professor of Philosophy and current chair of Women’s & Gender Studies join museum director Michael Di Giovine and student co-curator Maddie Maychak for a tour and discussion of WCU’s longstanding Women’s and Gender Studies program. As a Normal School, West Chester’s student population always included a significant number of women, but society was far from treating gender equitably; as society became more progressive, visionary faculty and students at West Chester State College created one of the earliest women studies programs in the country. Illustrated with a rich variety of artifacts and compelling stories from the WCU 150 exhibition, we will discuss the history of the program, and the ways in which the university continues to work towards equity in the treatment of women, people of all gender identities and sexualities, and under-represented groups.
