Major/Minor/Certificate in Gender and Sexuality Studies
Beginning in summer 2012, the Gender and Sexuality Center forged an initiative to create an academic certificate, minor, and/or major in LGBTQ or Queer Studies. One of our undergraduate staff positions will help coordinate the activities of a steering committee of students, faculty, and staff for the next several years. This committee will design a plan for program implementation, including suggested courses, timeline, faculty, and structure recommendations. For more information, please contact Annie Russell.
The GELS LLC is a new student living and learning community built around exploring concepts surrounding gender and sexuality, addressing issues of equity, and improving the campus climate so that it may be a safe and supportive environment for all people at URI. The GELS LLC is open to all undergraduate students at URI and is housed in Ellery Hall. To learn more, visit our page or contact Annie Russell directly.
