WOSAC: Women’s Studies Advocacy Council for U of A Women and Gender Studies

Mission: The mission of the Department of Gender and Women’s Studies is to promote and support teaching, research and outreach that works to contest the historical, ongoing and pervasive gender-based oppressions within society. Gender and Women’s Studies aims to be an evolving interdisciplinary forum for scholarship including but not limited to: feminist approaches to all possible areas of scholarly investigation; the study of the constitution of women’s lives in diverse social contexts; analysis of feminisms; the exploration of women’s movements; the study of the inextricably interconnected processes by which social formations such as gender, race, class, sexuality and nation are constructed.

WOSAC Mission: The Women’s Studies Advocacy Council (WOSAC) is a member-based community organization whose mission is to promote and support the students, faculty and activities of the University of Arizona Gender and Women’s Studies Department.

WOSAC raises funds and awareness to support and promote Gender and Women’s Studies. Funds raised support:

  • Research travel for graduate students as well as faculty
  • Orientation events and airfare to the best and brightest Ph.D. recruits
  • Collaborative events with like-minded  campus and community groups to raise awareness on critical social issues
  • Emergency funds to help students in crisis

Vision: Creating a more inclusive world by starting with ourselves and our community

Goal: To support the efforts of the faculty, undergrad and grad students of the Women and Gender Studies department at the University of Arizona while bringing outstanding content and programs to our southern Arizona community through salons, workshops, Luna fest and much more.  We also created and support the Women’s Plaza of Honor through generous donations. We are very close to the fundraising necessary to dedicate a bench in the plaza for the Honorable, Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Please help us reach this goal. No gift is too small.
