Women faculty from Bennett College in Greensboro, North Carolina, North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro, North Carolina Central University in Durham, the University of Maryland Eastern Shore in Princess Anne, and Winston-Salem State University in North Carolina, will be included in the program.
