Our vision is to advance the field through interdisciplinary research and innovative pedagogies, inspiring a new generation of gender and sexuality scholars and feminist leaders committed to social justice. We strive to be a globally recognized model of excellence in gender, sexuality and feminist scholarship.

The mission of the Department of Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies (WGSS) is to generate and transmit knowledge about the gendered nature of our lives and the ways gender, sexuality and other categories of identity shape and are shaped by culture and society. In order to achieve this goal we develop and implement programs of instruction, research, and service in the interdisciplinary field of women's, gender and sexuality studies. We seek to make visible the experiences and contributions of women and other historically disenfranchised populations in a vast range of historical and social locations.
