CWGS Faculty Development ProgramThe Center for Women's & Gender Studies is pleased to present our Faculty Development Program. This program, with support from the Provost's Office and Graduate School, is designed to assist in recruitment, retention and promotion of new faculty members by providing them with support of various kinds, including mentors and research funding.
Our goal is to welcome, inform and support our new colleagues. The faculty fellows are outstanding young scholars who work in gender studies. We are very pleased to have them as members of the university community.
During the fall semester, all of the fellows give presentations in the New Faculty Colloquium. CWGS encourages interested faculty and students from the university community to attend the colloquium series to learn about and engage with the latest research in gender studies from across campus.
This program is part of a broader effort by CWGS to facilitate interdisciplinary research on campus by bringing together scholars trained in different methodologies and disciplinary traditions around a common theme. When interdisciplinary groups of scholars form broader intellectual communities, it also increases the likelihood that these scholars will go on to have successful research and become long standing members of our faculty.
