Women's Studies at the University at Albany has as its mission feminist undergraduate and graduate education and research for social justice. We seek to connect our work as academics with the social and political world outside the university; to educate our students about social inequalities that result from sexism, racism, classism, heterosexism, and ethnocentrism; and to link knowledge, research, teaching, and activism. We seek to engage students in the discovery and production of knowledge that emerges from feminist perspectives on culture and society; on literature and the arts; on history, law, and public policy; on sociology, anthropology, and the social sciences; on area and ethnic studies; and on health, science, and technology; and that closes gaps in traditional higher education resulting from the exclusion of women and other marginalized groups.
