Attention Faculty: How You Can Help

The Women's and Gender Studies Program Committee is always interested in meeting faculty and staff with an interest in Women's and Gender Studies.

If you think that a class you're offering in the future might be a good fit for a Women's and Gender Studies cross-list, please contact program director, Dr. Liana Babayan.

Faculty and staff are also welcome to bring ideas for programming, program development, and service needs to the Women's and Gender Studies Program Committee meetings.

Faculty play a tremendous role in introducing students to Women's and Gender Studies—if you have a student who you think would be interested in WGST 1101 or who might be a good fit for the minor, suggest that the student take a look at our website or register for the intro course.

Lastly, faculty serve an important function in promoting and attending student events. Watch the calendar for events that you might be interested to share with your students or attend yourself!
