Build experience, skills, friendships, and connections that will last a lifetime
We encourage learning beyond the classroom. Here are some ways to get involved with Women’s & Gender Studies.
Student Alliance for Gender Equality and Sexual Health
SAGE + SH seeks to provide a place of action, discussion, and academic development for students interested in feminist and gender concerns on the UNL campus and the Lincoln community.
This student group is dedicated to the promotion and wellness of all gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, and allied students and staff.
Our award-winning faculty members regularly work with students through the UCARE and McNair Programs. The UCARE program creates intellectual partnerships between UNL faculty and undergraduates by providing funds for research. UNL's McNair Scholars Program encourages students to pursue graduate studies by providing opportunities to define goals, engage in research, and develop the skills and student/faculty mentor relationships critical to success at the doctoral level.
In the Women’s & Gender Studies Program, we strongly encourage students to complete an internship at some point during their academic career. Previous students have found them an excellent way to discover what kind of work they might want to do after graduation and to make connections with people in the community.
No Limits Conference
No Limits is an interdisciplinary conference on Women's & Gender Studies that has hosted hundreds of presentations from students and community members involved in Women's and Gender Studies in numerous academic departments and community groups.
WGS Annual Lecture
This Women's & Gender Studies-sponsored event features local and national scholars presenting innovative research. It’s a great opportunity for our students to interact with these scholars both formally and informally.
