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 168 majors and minors, we are bigger than ever. This May, WGST proudly conferred degrees to 23 majors, 25 minors, 3 undergraduate certificate students, and 6 graduate certificate students. Please follow the links below for news on graduation, and scholarship and award winners Karina Hillman, Rebekah Kenitzer, Madison Boreman, Jessica Chavez, as well as this year’s WGST Excellence in Inclusion award recipient Haley Takahashi.

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

WGST 2019

Congratulations to the WGST Class of 2019!

Faculty, staff, alumni, family and friends gathered together in Old Main Chapel on a snowy spring day to celebrate our graduates and recognize our scholarship and award winners. Dr. Kristie Soares led this year's ceremony, which included speeches by department chair Dr. Lorraine Bayard de Volo, and students Jamie Ramge, Jackson Reinagel and Casey McAndrew. The ceremony was followed by a lively reception in the Heritage Center, giving faculty a chance to meet the proud friends and families of our graduates.
