Teaching that Transforms
 
Faculty members in the Women's Studies Program represent a variety of disciplines in the humanities, the fine arts, and the social and natural sciences.  They are published in prestigious professional and literary journals, and frequently present their research findings and literary work at national and international conferences, including the annual meetings of the National Women's Studies Association and the Association of Women in Psychology.  Our faculty work closely with students and assist them in their academic pursuits--whether it is research in the social sciences, creative writing, or dance performance.
