Faculty Affiliates

Faculty Affiliates of the Women’s and Gender Studies Program are members of the Iowa State University community committed to, and actively involved in, fulfilling the Program’s mission of teaching, research, and outreach.

As an interdisciplinary academic program, Women’s and Gender Studies depends upon the work of university-wide faculty who cross the boundaries of their disciplines to contribute to the development and diffusion of knowledge and activism within this field of study.

Faculty Affiliates include tenure-track faculty, lecturers, clinicians, professional and scientific employees, and adjunct faculty members at ISU.

WGS faculty affiliates are eligible to apply for the Mini-Grants Program to support their research and professional development activities. Please fill out the application form here with information about how your work will contribute to women’s and gender studies, feminist and related scholarship and/or teaching. There is no specific deadline for this award.
