A Brief Overview for Friends & Supporters
The Center for Gender Studies at Radford University continues to carryout its mission. Since it was founded in 1990, the Center has had many successes in bringing teaching and scholarship on gender to the forefront on campus. Student-Faculty Research Conferences on Gender have attracted students and faculty within Radford University as well as from other regions, providing students from many disciplines with the opportunity to present their work, to meet students and faculty from other institutions, and to hear experts discuss some of the dramatic changes that have happened in gender research and with respect to women's and men's roles. These conferences, symposiums, along with other events sponsored by the Center, provide important opportunities for students to develop and exchange ideas and engage in serious dialogue about gender-related issues.
The development and exchange of ideas through dialogues is a crucial step in problem-solving and many problems related to gender remain to be solved in our society. Educating and supporting today's students in these issues is, we believe, our best hope for challenging and re-designing practices and institutions so that, in the future ...
its work to go forward, the Center for Gender Studies now relies mainly
on internal funding and grants. Donations furthering these efforts are
always appreciated, but are no longer actively sought via explicit
campaigns and other fund raising events. Nevertheless, the Center continues to provide
scholarships for students to attend professional conferences,
to publish and distribute research findings.
