Who we are.
The Women’s and Gender Studies program at Rowan University is an interdisciplinary, global educational movement that is transforming what we know and think about women and gender in the complex contexts of culture and society. Founded in 1974, the Women’s and Gender Studies program at Rowan is one of the oldest in the nation, consisting of dozens of courses and offering an 18 credit interdisciplinary concentration. The program examines the status, perspectives, and contributions of women and the interaction between gender and other social identities. Both classroom-based and public educational activities are designed to broaden understanding of gender and diversity issues in education, in institutional culture, and in society at large.
Office hours: Tuesdays 12 to 3, or by appointment.
The Women's and Gender Studies Office is located in Robinson Hall, first floor, in the Liberal Arts & Sciences Suite - across from room 100.
