Criteria for Co-sponsorship of Events with Women’s and Gender Studies:
- We require that the speaker or event must address an issue or issues relevant to Women’s and Gender Studies. Special preference will be given to events and/or speakers that further our strategic priorities (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender/Sexuality Studies; Global/Transnational Women’s and Gender Studies; and Gender and Feminist Theories and Methodologies).
- We prefer to co-sponsor a speaker or specific aspect of an event, rather than an entire conference or program.
- We expect that the speaker or event is designed to enhance the education and intellectual climate of the university as a whole. We prefer events that are free and open to the public.
- Priority will be given to requests from WGS faculty and students.
The WGS program usually offers co-sponsorships ranging from $50-250 and has also supplied in-kind donations such as printing and publicity.
Requests must be submitted before April 1. After April 1 please hold requests until the first week of the Fall semester.
