EAU CLAIRE — Lisa Cooper-Murphy recently took over as coordinator of the Women's and Gender Equity Center for the 2007-08 academic year at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.

Cooper-Murphy, who is currently working toward a master's degree in English and previously earned a bachelor's degree in English literature with a minor in Women's studies from UW-Eau Claire, has been active in women's issues in the past. She has volunteered with several organizations, including The Bridge to Hope, the UW-Stout Campus Violence Prevention Project and the Minnesota Women's Consortium.

Cooper-Murphy said in the coming year she hopes to continue promoting and improving upon the services offered by the WAGE Center in the past, as well as plan several new services, including a monthly feminist book club and a bimonthly support group, facilitated in cooperation with university Counseling Services, for those with loved ones serving in Iraq or Afghanistan.

"I am pleased to have someone with Ms. Cooper-Murphy's enthusiasm for women's issues and gender equity join the Student Development and Diversity team," said Dr. Kimberly Barrett, associate vice chancellor for Student Development and Diversity."She has hit the ground running, putting together an engaging slate of programs for the semester."
