From the Chair

Dear Friends of Women and Gender Studies,

As we finish up another terrific academic year, I’m thrilled to announce that WGST continues to grow: with 160 majors and minors, we are bigger than ever. This May, WGST proudly conferred degrees to 22 majors, 28 minors, 6 undergraduate certificate students, and 5 graduate certificate students, making this the largest yet! Please follow the links below for news on graduation, and scholarship and award winners Jackson Reinagel, Brit Nuckles, and Maren Rosenbach as well as this year’s WGST Excellence in Inclusion award recipients Lauren Arnold and Selena Wellington.

Thank you for your continued support of Women and Gender Studies. As always, we’d love to hear from you.
