Founding Friends of the Center for Gender Studies
Radford University Becoming a Center Friend Center for Gender Studies
     Many years ago, we began to recruit people to join us as oin us as Friends of the Center for Gender Studies, a campaign which was initially chaired by Marie Waters and Jo Alderman. The Center for Gender Studies much appreciates the contributions that have already been made by its friends and associates and much of the credit for this campaign's success belongs to to groundbreaking work of Marie and Jo. We'll always be grateful to both of them for their efforts. In the past these contributions were acknowledged within the Center's online  Annual Reports; however, the reports are no longer placed online so we feel it is important that they be given special founders recognition here. 
      The Center is very grateful for the support we received in initiating its mission.  The following list indicates many, but not all of those founding and early supporters: 

Dr. Jill Alcorn, Ms. Jo Alderman, Dr. Mary W. Atwell, Alliant Techsystems, Ms. April Asbury, Ms. Karen Asquith, Ms. Sudie Back, Anne C.
