Check the center’s website for more information about its support and advocacy services.
The center also offers special resources:
- Gen(der) Ed is a bi-weekly podcast hosting conversations that explore the intersection of gender and other identities, and cover topics for our students, faculty, and staff members on leadership, equity, wellbeing, and healthy relationships. Join us in celebrating the experiences, achievements, and diversity within our campus community. Listen on your favorite podcast streaming platform.
- (Dis)course is an ongoing dialogue to discuss relevant issues of gender in society, while bringing to the forefront the work and teachings of Virginia Tech faculty members. By engaging with both traditional “texts,” as well as contemporary text, such as television and new media, the center is creating a modern-day book club that fosters community, is intentionally intersectional, and contributes to and engages with gendered issues. Discussion groups are in partnership with Introduction to Africana Studies classes and will take place via Zoom every other week, with two opportunities to engage during each discussion week.
