Co-chaired by Professor Yasmine Ergas and Professor Alondra Nelson, the WGSS Council is a network of leaders of centers, institutes, and initiatives at Columbia University dedicated to women’s, gender, and sexuality studies. The goal of the WGSS Council—established in 2013, with support from the Vice Provost for Academic Planning and the Vice Provost for Faculty Diversity and Inclusion, and with the co-sponsorship of the Dean of the School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) and the Executive Vice President of Arts and Sciences—is to bring faculty and administrators from across the university together to share information and resources. The hope is that these conversations will foster fruitful collaborations in curriculum, research, and programming and highlight the breadth of gender and sexuality studies at Columbia.
