Help us expand research, internship, and community-based learning opportunities for students!
WGST Senior Capstone Class (Winter 2020)
The Santa Clara Women’s and Gender Studies Department is thrilled about its growth and development as a free-standing major SCU. Now more than ever the interdisciplinary field of women’s and gender studies and its links to vital issues of racial, economic and environmental justice remain critical to advancing transformative change in local and global contexts. With your support on this Day of Giving we can expand research, internship, and community-based learning opportunities for our students.
Chair, Women’s and Gender Studies Department
"When I arrived at Santa Clara University, I felt like a lost sailor at sea caught amid a storm. The Women’s and Gender Studies Department found me, became my lighthouse, and guided me safely to shore. Thank you, WGST, for providing a safe space and encouraging me to speak up for what I believe in!"
– Simran Ashley Sonia Prasad, Class of 2021
"The WGST Department gave me access to such an amazing community of feminists! I was always made to feel welcomed and supported by every person in the Department. They inspire me to manifest the person I am trying to be."
– Marissa Boylan, Class of 2021
