Women’s and Gender Studies Program courses are designed to encourage students to find their voice, articulate their ideas in a space intended to be safe and supportive, while also challenging students to consider difficult topics. The classrooms invite students to speak, and to engage one another. There is an intentional interactive dynamic to the classroom, and the classroom conversations typically are generative. That is, they produce more conversations and awareness. This helps students recognize their own experiences, while connecting them or situating them to broader social forces. Faculty and students engage in conversations inside of the class but outside as well, making faculty accessible to students.
