Women's Studies Institute


The mission of the Women’s Studies Institute (WSI) is to provide access to interdisciplinary knowledge about women, gender, and sexuality through the fostering of transdisciplinary collaboration among researchers and through public programming to make new research accessible to wide audiences, including the South Texas community and beyond.

Women's Studies Institute History

Sonia-and-Caroyln.pngWe would like to thank Dr. Sonia Saldívar-Hull, founder of the institute, and Senior Administrative Associate Carolyn Motley (recently retired) for their dedication to growing the Women's Studies Institute. Without their continued dedication, we wouldn't be where we are today.








The WSI collaborates with the WGSS Program to place WGSS majors in internships. Students may request an internship with the WSI if space is available.
