Women's Studies

The women's studies program at UW-Eau Claire coordinates teaching, research and scholarship in the field of women's studies. This unique program incorporates practice that is informed by theory and gendered analyses. The women's studies program creates a community of scholars and activists consisting of students, faculty, staff and community members. Students learn to not only think critically, but also to make important connections between their learning and their lives.
