Mission Statement

The Gender Studies program at Indiana State University is an interdisciplinary field of study. The program promotes a critical, feminist, and cross-cultural understanding of structural inequalities in a local and global context from historical and contemporary perspectives. Students explore the intersections of gender, sexuality, social class, nationality, ethnicity, race, religion, age, and ability. The program seeks to understand and address how the contributions and experiences of women and other marginalized groups are devalued. Therefore, the Gender Studies program is active in facilitating and supporting a variety of activities and events concerned with social justice.
