The Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame would not exist without the support of our partner organizations! We are particularly grateful for the ongoing support of Southern Connecticut State University which houses our offices and for our close partnerships with the SCSU Women’s Studies Program and Women’s Center. We are delighted to have Dr. Tricia Lin, Chair of Women’s Studies at SCSU, and Dr. Ellen Durnin, Dean of SCSU’s School of Business, on our Board of Trustees.  Dr. Rosalyn Amenta, Director of Women’s Programs at SCSU, serves as co-chair of our Consulting Scholars Committee. We are deeply grateful for all of their contributions to the Hall.
