The Women’s Studies Program at Alma College is pleased to announce the establishment of two funds in memory of Roseanne L. Hoefel, Professor of English and co-founder, with Carol Bender, of Alma College’s Women’s Studies Program.
The primary fund, The Roseanne Hoefel Women’s Studies Scholar-in-Residence Fund, is designated to support an annual campus visit by a distinguished female scholar during which students, faculty, and staff will have the opportunity for extensive interaction with this individual (in a manner similar to the Woodrow Wilson Visiting Scholar Program). Each fall, the Scholar-in-Residence will spend three to four days on campus presenting her ideas in classes, a keynote address, and a faculty forum.
Additionally, she will interact informally with Alma College campus and community members in the context of meals and receptions. The inaugural Scholar-in-Residence, Dr. Patricia Yancey Martin, Daisy Flory Professor of Sociology at Florida State University, visited Alma College from Oct. 3-6, 2001. Gifts to the fund may be made to the Alma College Advancement Office.
The secondary fund, the Roseanne Hoefel Memorial Book Fund, is designated to assist students with need by providing funds for books. Gifts to this fund may be made to the Alma College Advancement Office. Students who wish to apply for assistance from this fund should see the co-directors of Women’s Studies.
When contributing to these funds, make checks payable to Alma College and please be sure to stipulate on your donation which fund your contribution supports, “Scholar-in-Residence Fund” or “Book Fund.”
