If you're going to study diverse topics, you need diverse minds. That's why our faculty have joint appointments in our program and in other departments. This helps to build bridges and create a collegial, interdisciplinary and diverse community of scholars and teachers.
Our department is heavily involved in the Women's Well Being Initiative (WWBI). We offer our students the opportunity to get experience working in the community through the WWBI.
There's a lot to explore when it comes to issues of gender, sexuality, race, class and identity. We host the Dr. Mary Baskin Waters Lecture, an annual lecture to explore these topics in depth.
