Our women’s and gender studies minors gain a rich understanding of gender as a social construct – then use that understanding to break new ground in their personal and professional lives.

Women’s & Gender Studies Mission

Women’s and Gender Studies supports:

•    the liberal arts, emphasizing critical thinking and writing
•    the mission of the college by affirming the whole person through its innovative pedagogies, relevant theories and its importance in making sense of the world we encounter daily
•    concerns of social justice and human dignity

As a Catholic and Norbertine college, we at St. Norbert are invested in issues of justice and human dignity, issues that have always been integral to women’s and gender studies.
