Current Students

The Harriet Tubman Department of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies has an active student community, with opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to extend their work beyond the classroom.

Get Involved in The Department

The Harriet Tubman Department of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (WGSS) strives to build a vibrant community of students. Undergraduate and graduate students are given voice at the Department level through the election of a student representative who participates in department faculty meetings.

The department has a vibrant series of Social Justice Hangouts and other events held each year to bring together students and faculty from all our programs and the broader University community. 

If you are interested in helping build an even more active student community please contact Gwen Warman at
