Wake Forest University supports the Anna Julia Cooper Center, a center for intersectional scholarship; supports Teacher Scholar Post-Doctoral Fellows focused on intersectional research projects; and offers competitive funds to support research of WFU faculty engaged in research addressing issues of consequence to women and girls of color.

Wake Forest University is the institutional administrator of the Collaborative.

“Women of color will constitute more than half of all women in the United States by 2050, but they are infrequently the central subjects of scholarly inquiry. This research deficit has meaningful consequences for the ways our institutions contribute to public discourse and policymaking. As part of the collaborative, Wake Forest is proud to be among such a distinguished group of institutions that seeks to address this deficit.”
