School of Gender, Race & Nations
The School of Gender, Race, and Nations creates new intellectual and community connections among its founding partners—Black Studies; Indigenous Nations Studies; Chicano/Latino Studies; and Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies—to better understand and advocate for historically under-served populations crucial to Oregon’s success.

The application deadline for Fall admission to the GRN Graduate Certificate is July 1st.


The School of Gender, Race and Nations has been part of a much wider effort nationally and internationally to educate, provide safe space, and speak truth to power in the wake of the recent 2016 U.S. presidential election. SGRN joined with the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the office of Global Diversity and Inclusion to cosponsor “Dialogue Together,” a campus forum that took place a week after the election.  What follows is a joint letter to the Board of Trustees in light of former PSU President Wim Wiewel’s important announcement that PSU is a sanctuary campus. Read the full letter.


There's lots going on at the School of Gender, Race, and Nations!
