The Woman's College Chapter of the Committee for North Carolina was an affiliate of the Southern Conference for Human Welfare (SCHW) housed at Woman's College of the University of North Carolina (WCUNC) in the 1940s.
SCHW, established in 1938, tried to bring New Deal-inspired reforms to the South, with particular emphasis on social justice, civil rights, and election reform. SCHW helped lay the groundwork for future civil rights activism before disbanding in 1948 amid charges of harboring Communist sympathies.
In 1946, the WCUNC chapter's officers included Devorah Poliakoff (president) and Lucy Rodgers (secretary-treasurer). That same year, the group produced a newsletter, W.C. Informer edited by Nancy Siff, Marjean Perry, Lyn Brown, Gracia Broadbooks, Edda Mae Trostler, Nina Van Dam. The newsletter touched on subjects including voter registration, race relations, nuclear weapons, academic freedom, and housing.
