Sponsorship Request

The Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program takes great pride in supporting projects and events that contribute to the overall advancement and education of WGSS related dialogue. We receive a large number of requests each year to co-sponsor speakers and events, and we thank you for reaching out to foster interdisciplinary collaboration. Please note that all emails will be filtered through our WGSS email and, once received, you will be contacted within two weeks. We ask that all proposed events meet the following criteria: 

Criteria to keep in mind when requesting co-sponsorship of events with Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies:

  • We require that all co-sponsorship requests address issues directly focused on Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. In AY 2018-2019, priority will be given to events revolving around gender and sexuality as they impact global migration (including immigration), leadership, citizenship, race, and religion.
  • Our resources allow us to co-sponsor only a specific aspect of an event, rather than an entire conference or program (i.e. transportation, lodging, and refreshments).
  • We expect that the event is designed to enhance the educational and intellectual climate of the university as a whole. We prefer events that are free and open to the public. 

For Fall 2018 events, the deadline for applications is Oct 1, 2018.        

For Spring 2019 events, the deadline for applications is Jan 30, 2019.
