Gender Programs and Services is committed to expanding understandings of gender through education and the promotion of visibility of any and all gender identities and expressions. We are also committed to advocacy towards greater social justice.


Gender Programs and Services exists to provide the campus with resources, information, and advocacy that relate to all aspects of gender, including, but not limited to, gender identity and expression. We seek to promote visibility for those of all gender identities, including women, men, trans and gender nonconforming, gender expansive, and agender individuals. In taking an intersectional, feminist approach to gender, we recognize the ways in which sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia, heterosexism, ableism, and classism, all effect one's experience of gender.

Gender programs and services learning outcomes

  • Students will gain a better understanding of the gender spectrum and recognize the differences between sex, gender, and gender expression.
  • Students will be able to identify and analyze intersections among gender and other categories of difference, such as sexuality, class, race, ethnicity, age, and physical ability.
  • Students will recognize how stereotypes of gender impact individuals and communities.
