Faculty in Women and Gender Studies contribute to the program from the entire campus. In addition to the Director, Dr. Ann Burnett, who teaches some of the WGS courses, affiliated faculty come from the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences and the College of Human Development and Education.


The WGS staff is an energetic group of instructors who have taken these classes, know the material, and are excellent teachers! We hope your first experience in this program, the WGS 110 course, is challenging, energizing, thought-provoking, and fun!
