About WWBI

artwork focused on social issues faced by women

Established in 2001 by the former core faculty in the Women and Gender Studies Program—Dr. Lynn Weber and Dr. DeAnne Massias—the Women’s Well-Being Initiative (WWBI) focuses on improving the lives of women and girls in the Midlands. Through an interdisciplinary community-based scholarship, education, and social action, WWBI engages in outreach and research projects that bring together USC faculty, student volunteers, and community partners.
