MWSA was founded in 1973 following a call for organization issued by five MSU faculty members engaged in teaching a new course on "Women in American Society." It became the first academic association in the country devoted to upgrading what is taught and thought about American women in our schools, colleges and universities.  

MWSA promotes non-racist, non-sexist education in public schools, community colleges and baccalaureate institutions in Michigan.

MWSA works for the elimination of bias and stereotyping in education and for the development of courses of study which will represent the accomplishments of all people.

MWSA encourages and promotes research by, for and about women.

MWSA serves as a link between educators and the community through projects such as the Women's Historical Center and Women's Hall of Fame.
