Founded in 1973, the University of Michigan Women's 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 frontlines of learning and research; to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, the Department of Women's Studies needs you—because the world needs Victors.
