The Center for Women & Gender (CWG) is an academic entity at Utah State University. We strive to create a professional and social climate focused on enhancing opportunities for women and men. CWG has a strong social justice mission, and all students, faculty, and advocates who are interested in exploring and addressing the challenges of intersectionalities (gender and ethnicity, gender and culture, gender and religion, etc.) will find an intellectual home with us.
We host nationally and internationally renowned speakers to educate the public and facilitate a broader conversation about gender, culture, and bias. We help finance faculty research on campus to provide up-to-date information for and about the intersectionality in our culture, society, and world. We assist single mothers who are in school to help them finish their education and prepare to provide a better future for their children. We recognize the women and men creating an atmosphere of openness and going beyond the boundaries placed on them by our society and our culture each year.
We at the CWG do not shy around the awkward or tough; we face it head on.
