Women's, Gender,and Sexuality Studies (WGSS) is an interdisciplinary academic program that challenges students to critically engage the ways that intersecting categories of gender, sexuality, race, class/caste, age, dis/ability, and citizenship shape our lives, cultures, and communities.

Our Program has been a vibrant part of the ISU community since 1974.
