Our new name, effective September 1, better captures what we already do: world-class feminist research, teaching, and engagement.
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine recognized Cortina for her "profound contributions" to evidence-based efforts to address campus sexual harassment
Founded in 1973, the University of Michigan Women's and Gender Studies Department is an interdisciplinary academic unit within the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts. 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.
We strive to support our students and faculty on the front lines of learning and research and to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, the Department of Women's and Gender Studies needs your support.
