Position Summary

Women's and Gender Studies (WGS) is an interdisciplinary program located in the College of Arts and Sciences. Founded in 1972, it is one of the oldest such programs in the country, and it supports three degree programs (a Bachelor's, a Master's, and a graduate certificate) that involve diverse faculty and students from across the university.
