Participants also will look at preliminary results of a survey assessing the funding, quality and support of 60 collegiate women's studies programs.
"The conference is a way in which those involved in Catholic higher education can listen to women's concerns and hopes for the new millennium," said Prof. Sharlene Hesse-Biber (Sociology), founder and executive director of NAWCHE.
Other highlights of the conference will include talks by author Patricia Hill Collins, the Charles Phelps Taft Professor at the University of Cincinnati, and feminist theologian Mary E. Hunt, co-director of the Women's Alliance for Theology, Ethics and Ritual.
