Program Faculty

Program faculty have contributed significantly to the primary mission of the Women and Gender Studies program through teaching, mentoring and/or administration. Compared to affiliate status, program faculty are expected to make a greater and more consistent contribution to the Women and Gender Studies program. Some contributions of program faculty include teaching a women and gender studies course, mentoring a graduate student, and serving on MAIS thesis and project committees.
