The Council for Women of Franklin & Marshall College (CFW) was established in 2011 by Elizabeth Clark Mackey ’75, after the successful celebration of 40 years of co-education in 2009. The Council continues to reflect the needs and aspirations of women of the F&M community through its mission:
The Council for Women of Franklin & Marshall College fosters the personal and professional development of Franklin & Marshall women at all life stages, while strengthening their connection to each other and engaging them as active participants in the College community.
Since 2011, the CFW has spearheaded numerous programs, such as the Annual Senior Student Leadership Luncheon, Negotiation Workshop designed for women, bringing the One Love Foundation to campus for a Common Hour and workshops featuring training focused on ending relationship violence for students, Career Circles with OSPGD, on-campus programming at Homecoming & Family Weekend and regional gatherings where participants discuss the issues of the day.
2019-2020 marks 50 years of co-education at F&M. We will be partnering with the College community to celebrate this milestone. Please reach out if you’d like to help in the planning.
The CFW is an engaged affinity group that provides support to the women of F&M by creating opportunities to connect, network and share. We look forward to meeting you at future CFW events.
