- Women and Gender Studies Fall Courses
The Women and Gender Studies program is both a major and a minor with roots in the 1980's after students
lobbied for the program. If you are interested in seeing the courses being
offered in the Fall 2015 you can access them here.
- Faculty-in-Residence 2016
We are very excited to announce next year's faculty-in-residence! And, there's an exciting twist: we'll be focusing our research efforts on grant funding for faculty research (recipients and additional grant opportunities will be announced in a separate email), and the self-study for the Center's scheduled Program Review. Our faculty residencies will resume in the spring 2016 with the following residents. We're excited to have you join us!
Spring 2016: Dr. Nicholas Heck (Department of Psychology) will be co-editing a special issue of the journal Psychology of Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity on the topic of LGBTQ youth in schools. Much of his fellowship at the GSRC will involve reviewing and editing manuscripts for this special issue. In addition, he will be analyzing data from a large survey of high school gay-straight alliance advisors in the midwest in order to better understand if and how mental health concerns are addressed within the context of gay-straight alliances.
Fall 2016: Dr. Jennica Webster (Department of Management) will be conducting research focused on the workplace experiences of transgender employees. Specifically, her research will explore the cognitive and emotional processes that link transgender workers’ unique experiences of discrimination at work to their occupational health and wellbeing. This research is critically important for those interested in improving the work lives of people with non-traditionalgender identities.
