Welcome to the Women's and Gender Studies Consortium
In order to ensure the safety and wellbeing of everyone involved, the conference co-conveners have decided to postpone “Resistance and Reimagination: Gender, Change, and the Arts."
The WGSC has published a Ms. Magazine article, titled “COVID-19, Disaster Capitalism and the Crisis in Women’s and Gender Studies,” which contextualizes some of the trends happening in GWS and higher education within Wisconsin in a larger national and historical context.
We are excited to share that 11 Women's and Gender Studies undergraduate students, across a variety of UW System campuses, have received awards that honor their research, community outreach, and scholarship. Congratulations to all the awardees for all of you hard work!
The Women’s and Gender Studies Consortium directly serves Women’s and Gender Studies students, faculty, staff, and administrators in all University of Wisconsin institutions. The Women’s Studies and Gender Consortium is committed to scholarship, teaching and activism that benefit all UW campuses and communities throughout the state. To accomplish this work, the Consortium invites and considers diverse voices, and seeks collaborations to improve the life of each community and the state of Wisconsin.
The Office of the GWS Librarian was created in 1977 to serve administrators, faculty, librarians and students across the UW System. Since 1989 it has been a constituent of the Women's and Gender Studies Consortium.
Initiated by a grant from the Division of Undergraduate Education of the National Science Foundation, the Women and Science Program became a permanent part of the UW System in the fall of 1996. The program is based on the UW-Oshkosh campus and serves all UW System institutions.
