We are one of the oldest and most respected departments of gender and women’s studies in the country. Our interdisciplinary curriculum prepares students for continuing graduate and professional education, as well as employment in diverse fields, from marketing to social work. We see the classroom as a potent site for the production of knowledge and insight, where students look beyond their own perspectives to understand the lives of other people. Our students are engaged in classes, research, internships, and other activities that enhance their experience at the UW, but more importantly, that prepare them for rewarding, curious, and engaged lives when they graduate.
Gifts received by the Department of Gender and Women’s Studies during the Fill the Hill campaign will help to support academic excellence among our students, promote undergraduate and graduate student research, fund student professional development opportunities and conferences, sponsor student internship experiences, and foster student leadership opportunities.
