Center for Gender and Sexualities Studies

The Center for Gender and Sexualities Studies (CGSS) supports the scholarly work and the lived experiences of all genders and sexualities.

The CGSS is dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge, dialogue, growth, and empowerment around issues of gender and sexualities.  We place emphasis on the intersections of race, ethnicity, gender and sexualities and educate others on the implications of such intersections.

The CGSS collaborates with other academic departments, faculty and staff to do course visits, educational event, and general consultations/services and support.

It is our goal to educate students to recognize the huge diversity of gendered experiences and perspectives among people and to cultivate a disposition to embrace gender and sexuality diversity and to work for justice and equality as we strive to fulfill the Jesuit mission.
