Mission Statement

 

The Gender Studies Program at Indiana State University is an interdisciplinary field of study that offers elective courses and a minor.  The Program promotes a critical, feminist, and cross-cultural understanding of gender and power in a global context from historical and contemporary perspectives.  Students explore the intersections of gender, sexuality, social class, nationality, ethnicity, race, religion, and age within themselves, the university community, and the broader world.  In addition, the Gender Studies Program is active in facilitating and supporting a variety of activities and events concerned with social justice for all people.
