Dear friends of Women and Gender Studies,
We’ve had a busy couple of months here at the Cottage, hiring a new faculty member in the area of race/ethnicity. We will welcome Maisam Alomar to the department this coming fall semester. She is currently finishing up her PhD in ethnic studies at the University of California San Diego. New WGST professor Kristie Soares joined us this January. Both a professor and a performance artist, Dr. Soares’s work explores issues of queerness in Caribbean and Latinx communities. We’re excited to welcome these new members of our WGST community! And they are arriving just in time—we now enjoy 145 WGST majors and minors.
Thank you for your continued support of Women and Gender Studies. We’d love to hear from you.
Lorraine Bayard de Volo
Chair and Associate Professor, Women and Gender Studies
You're Invited!: 2018 WGST Commencement
We invite you to join us Thursday, May 10th, 2018 at 12:00 noon to recognize the Women and Gender Studies graduating class of 2018, our majors, minors, certificate students, and scholarship awardees.
We look forward to having parents, relatives and friends gather together in the historic Old Main Chapel on the CU-Boulder campus, as the graduates and awardees process from the Gates Woodruff Cottage across the Norlin Quad to Old Main.
Degrees will be conferred to our majors, and we also recognize students who have completed the minor in women and gender studies, as well as the certificates in Global Gender and Sexuality Studies and LGBTQ Studies. Several graduate students will also be recognized for their completion of the Graduate Certificate in Women and Gender Studies.
Scholarship awards will be presented to students, including the Joanne Easley Arnold Outstanding Senior Award, the Jean Dubofsky Scholarship, and the Lucile Berkeley Buchanan Scholarship. Each of these awardees is presented with a certificate, given a monetary award, and their names are added to memorial plaques that hang in the Cottage.
A catered reception will follow in the Heritage Center, on the third floor of Old Main. Please contact the WGST office at 303-492-8923 or email@example.com with any questions about the ceremony, or any accessibility needs you may have.
