Resources for Community

In Gender & Women's Studies, we create connections with our communities through our research and events. We're committed to exploring the ways that feminism, in both its political and scholarly traditions, can illuminate and create change in our communities in Denver and around the world.

We welcome you to learn more about our program and our faculty's areas of interest, and we hope you'll attend one of our on-campus or community events.
