Faculty Associates

Associates are individuals who take a somewhat larger role in women's and gender studies, whether by conducting research in women's and gender studies or teaching women's and gender studies-approved classes (or both). These individuals would be expected to work across their own discipline to incorporate undergraduates, graduate students and other faculty affiliated with women's and gender studies. They would regularly attend associate meetings (usually two per year), brainstorm and give feedback to WGST.
