Hankey Center

The Hankey Center for the Education and Advancement of Women, named in honor of Captain Joan Hankey, USN (retired) ’59, and her family, was dedicated on June 7, 2003, to house the C. Elizabeth Boyd ’33 Archives.

The Hankey Center is a scholarly center focused on the history and education of women, and provides space and facilities for study, research, and discussion as well as internships for students in the fields of women's history and archives management.

The Hankey Center serves as the central resource on the history of Wilson College. We provide support for academic programs by making the Center’s staff and resources available to the Wilson community, as well as to scholars, independent researchers and educators in the broader community.

The Hankey Center staff is available to speak to community organizations, schools and other institutions of higher education, on topics related to the history of women's education, the history of Wilson College, archiving and genealogy, encouraging girls in math and science, and a variety of women's issues.
