$3.5 Million Pembroke Center Archives Endowment Campaign

The Pembroke Center’s two complementary archives – the Christine Dunlap Farnham Archive and the Feminist Theory Archive – explore Brown and Rhode Island women’s history and the intellectual history of feminist theory.  The Center is engaged in a campaign to build an endowment to support these archives with enhanced resources to grow the collections and increase their accessibility for teaching and research.  Thanks to a leadership gift of $1 million from Pembroke Center Associates Council chair Nancy L. Buc’65 – and increasing support from alumnae/i and friends – the Center is well on its way.
