To support and promote women's and gender studies in both its academic and extra-curricular activities at Saddleback College. This includes the development of an interdisciplinary curriculum that seeks to examine the ways in which race, ethnicity, class, sexuality and other experiences intersect with gender and how these perspectives shape our lives. We are committed to both campus awareness and community activism surrounding gender issues and to the development and maintenance of resources for the use of faculty, staff, and students on campus.
Occasional Fridays at 12 p.m. (location and time TBD). For more inforamtion, please contact April Cubbage at firstname.lastname@example.org.
