The Department is a diverse intellectual community dedicated to excellence through feminist research, teaching, and activism. It seeks to build interdisciplinary collaborations among faculty and students that bridge gender, racial, ethnic, economic, and national divides; create new knowledge about women, gender, race, class, sexuality, and disability; challenge unequal distributions of power; and improve the lives of all individuals and communities.
