Why is this work important?
“We want our students to lead wherever their careers take them. Regardless of the career or profession, we are seeing increasing diversity and globalization. Our students are going to have to confront and grapple with those complex issues and we want to provide them with the tools to lead effectively.”
Christy Glass, Intersections Director
Summary of project
Utah State University’s College of Humanities and Social Sciences will feature a Center for Intersectional Gender Studies and Research (Intersections) beginning fall 2021.
Intersections will offer minors in Intersectional Gender Studies and Sexuality Studies, as well as a certificate of study in Inclusive Leadership. All three programs feature 18 credit hours of coursework in addition to events, workshops, lectures, and conferences. These fields of study are intended to compliment majors campus-wide.
Intersections will prepare USU students to be leaders in an increasingly diverse world.
