The first woman power conference offered by the University of Minnesota was held in 1974. Supported by the Office of Student Affairs, the conference was open to women on campus in leadership roles and its goals were to increase "awareness of personal and organizational power, identifying resources on campus for developing programs on women's issues and forming a network of communication." Each conference had a different theme and beginning in 1980, other University offices outside of the Office of Student Affairs began to support the women power conferences.
