Our WGS Student Staff is made up of Graduate and Undergraduate students who are especially passionate about Women’s and Gender Studies. Our student workers have a multi-faceted role when it comes to the WGS program, from planning and staffing events, getting students more involved with WGS in and outside of the classroom, promoting the program via our website and social media, assisting WGS faculty, and more. Our student workers bring us the unique perspective of helping to shape the program inside the office, and being shaped by the program inside their classes.
