Women's and Gender Studies Opportunities and Involvement

Find ways to get involved and make a difference

Students interested in women’s and gender issues have many opportunities to get involved outside the classroom. Here are a few groups and organizations on campus you might be interested in checking out.

The Kate Shelley House on Simpson's campus is home to the Women’s and Gender Resource Center (WGRC), a comfortable and supportive environment that encourages awareness and discussion of women’s and gender issues. It is also a living space for four students who are interested in working together and with the campus to promote awareness of these issues.

In addition to serving as a themed residence house, WGRC provides resources about women and opportunities to recognize the unique and powerful role of women in modern society. It organizes programming on campus related to women’s and gender issues, and collaborates with other campus groups to promote gender justice.

There is a library for Simpson community members who would like to learn more about women, feminism, and gender issues, and Kate Shelley House regularly hosts meetings of student groups and the the WaGS faculty/student book club.
