Department of Race, Ethnicity, Gender, and Sexuality Studies

Given the ongoing problems of racism and sexual violence that continue to impact our institutions and communities, we remain committed to preparing our students to act as agents of social change in academic, legal, and non-profit fields. At REGSS, the staff and faculty remain devoted to helping our students navigate within the university to work towards a more equal and just world. 


We honor what we know. This is the main tenet of our faculty and staff because many of us grew up in the same communities and family backgrounds similar to those of our students. Our life and work experiences often overlap with those who sit in our classrooms, which makes many students feel respected and at home in Race, Ethnicity, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.
