Alumnus Spotlight on Tad Andracki
"Having a background in GWS has been useful in some "concrete" ways—making me conscious of the gender, race, and sexual components of our library collection, for example—but I'd like to think that it makes a difference in my day-to-day practice as an educator."
Graduate student spotlight on Jean Lee
"I've most enjoyed the seminars and professors in the GWS program. GWS also introduced me to critical activism within and outside the university setting. That has changed how I approach my research and teaching practices."
Graduate Student Spotlight on Kate Irwin
"My favorite part about being a member of the GWS community is connecting with graduate students and faculty from other departments and campus units. I have grown as a scholar, and more generally, as a person, by hearing the different experiences and approaches to scholarship that they bring to the table."
