Vision: Through research, teaching, and service, the Center for Gender and Sexualities Studies aims to be the knowledge leader among Jesuit universities, nurturing a culture that explores, embraces, and celebrates diverse gendered experiences and identities.

The Center for Gender and Sexualities Studies is dedicated to encouraging and conducting research on gender and sexual diversity. Through community collaboration research the CGSS helps to address gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, class, disability, nationality, and religious inequalities experienced in the greater Milwaukee community.
