The Women and Gender Studies Program is committed to continuing its history of serving the University of North Dakota, its faculty and students, and the community through teaching, research, and service across disciplines by:
1. Developing and providing opportunities for learning at all levels including coherent undergraduate and graduate curricula;
2. Fostering multi- and interdisciplinary collaboration and research utilizing the skills and work of a wide web of associates; and
3. Sharing and integrating academic work by offering, coordinating, and supporting public programming.
This mission relies on models and advocates a pluralism of interests, perspectives, theories, and approaches that cross traditional academic structures to enable creative synergy on and off campus. The Program emphasizes feminist analysis of all aspects of gender, foregrounding intersections with sex, sexuality, race, class, religion, ethnicity, age, ability, and nationality. The Program provides a collaborative hub that furthers the mission of the University of North Dakota. Women and Gender Studies at the University of North Dakota takes a leadership role within the NDUS system and the state by advancing challenging academic inquiry, critical insight, social justice, global awareness, civic engagement, and self-empowerment.
