Get Ready for Graduation!
In addition to the SFSU Commencement, the Women and Gender Studies Department also holds an informal Graduation Celebration Party on Saturday, May 24.

This year, we will hold the WGS Graduation Celebration Party from 10 am – 12 pm in HUM 316. The short program will begin promptly at 10:30 am, and light refreshments will be served.

Students who are graduating in the Fall semester may decide whether or not they would like to be recognized either the semester before or after (not both). Please invite all whom you would like to join you at the celebration. However, please be sure to RSVP to the WGS department with the number of guests you are inviting by May 8. We also ask that if you or your guests need disability accommodation, that you let us know by that day as well.

Please RSVP to Lisa Tresca at  ltresca@sfsu.edu no later than Thursday, May 8.

Spotlight on Undergraduate Majors
Our undergraduate programs are thriving and growing.  Currently, the department supports 100 majors and 32 minors. Continuing our social justice tradition, all WGS senior majors spend a semester working in the community as part of their senior internship course (WGS 698). This semester, WGS students are contributing to organizations such as the LGBT Youth Space in San Jose and the GLBT Historical Society in San Francisco; youth education and empowerment programs including Oasis for Girls, Reading Partners of SF, and Girl Ventures; agencies addressing homelessness and domestic violence including the SHE (Sexual and Reproductive Health Education) Project and Shalom-Bayit; the transgender outreach programs of the SF Public Health department and the TriCity Health Center; and political advocacy organizations QUIT (Queers Undermining Israeli Terrorism) and About Face.
