Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Department (WGSS)

WGSS is an interdisciplinary program designed to foster students' personal and intellectual development in the study of gender and sexuality within both local and global contexts; the intersectional analysis of race, gender, class, culture and disability; power, systems of privilege, and resistance; and the links between theoretical understandings of feminist/queer studies and community activism.

Women's Resource Center (WRC)

The WRC advocates for the best educational and campus experience for all members of the community. They accomplish this by advancing social justice, ensuring access to personal empowerment for all self-identified women, and by working toward a safe and healthy campus.
