The Gender Institute for Teaching and Advocacy
Our mission is to serve as a hub for transformative education, programming, and advocacy on issues of gender equity and social inclusion. We aim to provide academic and holistic support for students targeted by sexism and other intersecting oppressions. At GITA, we are committed to inclusive excellence in academic programming and services.
Our office is unique in that we offer both academics, as well as direct supportive services to students. The academic program within GITA (one major and two minors) identifies and critically examines systems of power utilizing intersectional and transnational frameworks that allow for self-reflection and active engagement in social change. The services arm of GITA empowers students, staff, faculty, and community members by providing access to resources and information to meet the needs of a diverse student body. Through our collaborations across campus, we offer programming that encourages engagement in critical dialogue and advocacy for social justice. All identities are welcome!
