The Jane Hibbard Idema Women's Studies Center  
Women's Studies Women's Studies Women's Studies





Women's Studies is an interdisciplinary academic curriculum that exposes students to women's historical and contemporary roles, their accomplishments, and their experiences in our society and across cultures.


The Jane Hibbard Idema Women's Studies Center at Aquinas prepares students to become catalysts for change and voices for feminist ideals, both in our society and around the globe. AQ Women's Studies faculty are as diverse as the field of Women's Studies. Not only do they have a range of interests, but they also each approach their commitment to teaching differently.


We've Moved!

The Women's Studies Center has moved to the second floor of the Academic Building. Come visit us in our new offices, AB 263 & 265.
