Revising the Women's Studies Program

A twenty-month program of scholar-led workshops as well as faculty retreats to revise the Gender and Women’s Studies Program at the University of Texas, Rio Grande Valley.

The grant seeks funding to bring in program consultants and specialists in an effort to revitalize the Gender And Women's Studies Program at UTRGV. The first phase of the project entails bringing in three program consultants to conduct workshops with affiliated faculty on best practices for generating interest and extending enrollment. In the second phase, external specialists will be invited to lead workshops on women, gender, and sexuality topics. Affiliated faculty will attend both workshops and retreats focused on incorporating insights gained from the external consultants into the program curriculum and course syllabi.
