Change HERstory

Arts and Wellbeing

Student Engagement


The arts play a transformative role in both individual and social health and wellbeing. We seek to develop opportunities for visiting artists and artists in residence to expand their reach and programming both on campus and in local communities. These efforts center the voices and experiences of women and other historically marginalized people.

Through grants and awards, 4W Initiative supports the development of scholarship and leadership in gender and wellbeing at all career stages, from undergraduate to established researchers. You can read more about the work of our awardees here.
