Women and Gender Studies

Our Mission

The Women and Gender Studies (WGS) Program at Clarion University is an interdisciplinary community where we explore women and gender issues across cultures.  Our values include respect for diversity, open-mindedness, and self-exploration.  We strive to cultivate supportive relationships between students and faculty, make connections between personal experience and intellectual development, and inspire action for social justice. 

Our programs enhances any major and career path. We  prepare students to be informed, involved, and empowered citizens.  Check out our pages below.

Dr. Deb WGS Scholarship

This is a new scholarship established by Dr. Deborah Burghardt in honor of the 20th anniversary of the founding of the Women and Gender Studies Program at Clarion University.
