Gender & Women’s Studies Faculty & Staff Directory

The gender & women’s studies program currently has core teaching faculty, and many teaching associates across the college.

Teaching associates teach courses in their home departments or, occasionally, they teach the core gender & women’s studies offerings.

This eclectic group comprises award-winning teachers, professionals ranging from the Chief of University Police to human resource associates and adult learning coordinators, and community members interested in gender & women’s studies. We come together to make the gender & women’s studies program work for you!
