Gender and Women's Studies Student Association

The Gender and Women's Studies Student Association is a Registered Student Organization (RSO) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Our purpose is to connect students interested in Gender and Sexuality studies and create a forum for both social involvement and academic collaboration.  Join us on Facebook!


GWS students elect a Student Representative every year.  The GWS Student Representative plans and organizes events of interest to students, and conveys student concerns and suggestions to the GWS faculty. 


Do you want to help grow GWS?  Would you be willing to recruit more GWS majors and minors?  You can help promote the study of gender and sexuality across campus by becoming a GWS volunteer!  There are multiple opportunities throughout the year.  For more information send an email to
