Apply to be a Faculty Affiliate
General Information about Affiliated Faculty
The Kennedy Center, the College of Family, Home, and Social Sciences and the College of Humanities jointly house and sponsor Global Women’s Studies. Membership as a faculty affiliate is open to all BYU faculty members whose teaching, research, and/or service activities involve global or domestic women’s issues. Global Women’s Studies provides a supportive environment and affiliates have access to a network in which junior and senior affiliated faculty members share, mentor, and, where appropriate, collaborate on research relating to women’s issues. The Global Women’s Studies program sponsors colloquia, other lectures, visiting scholars, collaborative research projects, mentoring relationships, open houses, conferences, and other related activities. These activities provide interdisciplinary contacts and connections, improve research opportunities, and foster the development of women’s studies at BYU.
Global Women's Studies faculty affiliates serve as mentors to our minors from all disciplines across campus. Ideally, a major in any program who wants to minor in Global Women's Studies could look to faculty affiliates from his or her own department or college as mentors. Affiliates also give input to help shape the future direction of Global Women's Studies at Brigham Young University.
Responsibilities of GWS Affiliates:
GWS affiliates are listed on our website. We hope that they will serve as mentors to GWS minors who might be interested in their field of study. Affiliates also give input to help us shape the future direction of GWS on campus. There is very little time commitment required of GWS affiliates, but we recommend that you communicate with your chair about all of your contributions to programs beyond your own
Affiliating is Easy
- Please send a head shot photo and a short blurb (maybe 125 words) about any teaching, research, or service you do that relates to women and/or gender studies. Send these to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will include this on the faculty affiliates page of our website.
- Please send a list of any recent publications (past five years) related to women or gender for our faculty publications page.
