The President’s Commission on the Status of Women (PCSW) will host its signature event—the Women’s Research Colloquium—at the Pointe in the Walter Pyramid on Wednesday, April 9, from 5-7:30 p.m. The evening will highlight CSULB scholars who contribute to the understanding of issues related to women and activists who advance causes important to the well-being of women.

Adriana Verdié of the College of the Arts’ Bob Cole Conservatory of Music will present “From Muses to Creators, Opera by a Female Composer,” a discussion of the growing number of women devoted to operatic composition and her own contributions to modern opera.

Rashida Crutchfield of the College of Health and Human Services’ School of Social Work will present “A Struggle To New Heights: The Experiences of Female Homeless College Students,” based on her study of 14 homeless, traditional-age community college students.

The Women’s Research Colloquium will also feature the presentation of the 2014 PCSW Advancement of Women Awards.
