Women's Studies

Departmental Website



The Women's Studies Program is a university-appointed body of faculty, staff and students. The program's primary focus is the educational concerns and needs of women at EIU and in the community.

The purpose of the Women's Studies Program is to promote an understanding of how issues related to gender, age, race, economic status, sexual identity, and nationality affect women's lives and the communities in which they live. In order to promote an equitable and sensitive environment for all persons, the council also responds to issues affecting women on campus and in the community.
