    The RIT Women's Caucus formally began February 13, 1973. Sixty women who represented staff, faculty and students met to determine goals and priorities for women at RIT. Three sub-committees were formed: Grievance, Personnel, and Psychological Climate. A Steering Committee was formed to handle organizational matters. The main goal of the caucus was to make the RIT community more aware of the problems and concerns facing women.
