The vision of the Women's Studies Program is to gain international recognition as a primary source of scholarship and information regarding gender issues on the US-Mexico border; to be a primary information source to the University on gender and diversity; and to be accessible to all students.
1) Expand the program to the university level, i.e. have the WS minor and graduate certificate available to students in all colleges;
2) Develop a research component focusing on US-Mexico gender issues;
3) Heighten community awareness and visibility of the WS Program while simultaneously heightening awareness of gender issues in the community.
The mission of the Women’s Studies Program is to provide the interdisciplinary study of women's experiences, emphasizing historical, contemporary, and future issues concerning women and men; to foster the development of gender equality in scholarship and the workplace; to help students better understand how knowledge, discourse, and values take different forms depending on multiple inequalities, especially for women of color and women on the US – Mexico border.
