What is the WGSC?

The University of Wisconsin System Women's and Gender Studies Consortium, housed at UW-Madison in the Department of Gender and Women’s Studies, works to ensure the continued development of Women's, Gender, and LGBTQ Studies in the UW System, to maintain our current national prominence in the field, and to create a unique inter-institutional model for educational innovation. Since 1989 the WGSC has been leading the effort to raise the profile and expand the resources devoted to Women's and Gender Studies programs, certification, scholarship, teaching, and curriculum in the UW System.  The Consortium serves as the formal organization of the fourteen campus-based Women's Studies programs and UW Extension. Advised by the Women and Gender Studies Consortium Advisory Council, the WGSC:

Administrators and staff welcome suggestions for new programs and comments on existing ones. The Consortium can also assist in fund raising activities on campuses.
