The Women's and Gender Studies Program is fortunate to work with many talented students. These students are recognized through entrance into Triota, the Women's and Gender Studies honor society, and each year, the program celebrates the achievements of one high achieving student with the Outstanding Student in Women's Studies Award.
Augusta University is home to the Beta Theta Chapter of Iota Iota Iota, an academic honor society dedicated to highlighting student success and academic achievement in Women's and Gender Studies and feminist scholarship.
Iota Iota Iota, or Triota, is named for the ancient goddesses Inanna, Ishtar, and Isis, and the honorary society seeks to encourage and support students to engage and cultivate excellence in women's studies.
Women's and Gender Studies students consistently share their work in academic forums, including the Phi Kappa Phi Research and Fine Arts Conference, the Women's Studies Symposium, and the Center for Undergraduate Research Brown Bag Series.
Several Women's and Gender Studies students have also presented work at national and regional conferences, including the National Women's Studies Association Conference and the Southeastern Women's Studies Association Conference.
In addition to their academic excellence, Women's and Gender Studies students are also honored for their service to the campus community. The Women's Studies Student Association received the Leading the Path Award in 2011 from the Office of Student Activities.
