Women and Gender Studies Executive Committee

About the Committee

The Women and Gender Studies Program mission is threefold: to provide academic programs in women’s and gender issues, to promote student outreach, and to support gender-related research.

The primary responsibilities of the Executive Committee will be to advise the Director, set program policies, and approve new course offerings and other curricular decisions. A subset of committee members will participate in the annual review of core faculty and in the hiring of new faculty.  The Executive Committee will conduct interim evaluations of the Director and advise the Director in personnel and staffing matters. 

Executive Committee members represent the program at both Women and Gender Studies events and college-level functions and have responsibility for initiating and undertaking special projects that foster the growth of the Women and Gender Studies program.  The Executive Committee will initiate and conduct research, and encourage others to do so, that contributes to the growth of the Women and Gender Studies Program.
