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.


Women’s Studies prepares students for leadership and careers. Our alumnae work for the Illinois Housing Council, Team Detroit, the Grand River Bands of Ottawa Indians, and other diverse organizations.


The annual Equality Bake Sale draws attention to the gender wage gap by charging women 25% less for their baked goods - donating proceeds to a local women’s shelter.
