Women and Gender Studies

Teaching   Research and Scholarship   Activism

Women and Gender Studies was founded as a model of a “three-pronged” stool: teaching, research and activism. We offer an exciting array of classes, at both the undergraduate and graduate level that interrogate systems in inequality, including gender, sexuality, race, class, ableism, religion, and region of the world.  Our internationally acclaimed faculty have expertise in human rights, transnational migration, sexuality studies, disability studies, gender-based violence, incarceration, minority and interracial families, health policy, environmental and ecofeminist issues, women writers, and masculinity studies.  We have partnerships with many community organizations including organizations that serve the trans community, LGBTQ youth, immigrants seeking asylum, campus outreach programs, prisoner re-entry programs and agencies serving families living with intimate partner violence.
