Institute for Women's Studies

Traditional academic disciplines have devoted little systematic attention to issues of gender, race, class, and sexuality. In the past 30 years, feminist scholars have contributed to the reinterpretation of existing data and to the presentation of new knowledge about the diversity of women's experiences. Through coursework and outreach, the Institute for Women's Studies offers students an opportunity to explore women's lives in global and multicultural contexts.

Institute of Native American Studies

Native American Studies is relatively new as a discipline, emerging only about thirty-five years ago. Though it continues to evolve, today Native American Studies is an exciting and vibrant field of inquiry with a network of scholars throughout North America. Central to it is the study of the Native nations of the Americas from the perspective of the indigenous peoples themselves.
