The Department of Women and Gender Studies (WGST) aims to foster students’ critical thinking skills in a learning environment that is supportive and challenging. Housed in the historic Hazel Gates Woodruff Cottage, our faculty encourage students to critically engage with course materials and with the world around them, and provide them tools to do so. We believe such skills are the prerequisites for enhancing the equality, dignity, and empowerment that we value. WGST also has the support of numerous associate faculty from many other units on campus, providing students with an intersectional and interdisciplinary array of courses to choose from.
