Women's Studies Affiliated Faculty


Texas Tech University is committed to ethical institutional programs that meet the teaching, research, and service objectives of each discipline and department, to policies that are consistent with those objectives, and to a working and learning environment that encourages active participation.

Such exemplary environments often challenge existing worldviews, requiring trust in the process of discovery and the acceptance of uncertainty and ambiguity within ethical parameters.

How is Affiliated Faculty defined?

An affiliate faculty member in the Women's Studies Program consists of persons holding academic appointments in other departments or interdisciplinary programs that support and advocate feminist pedagogy. Affiliated Faculty includes full-time faculty (tenure and non-tenure track). Additionally we also recognize half and three quarter time instructors, including but not limited to, GTPI and Adjuncts.

What does it mean to be an Affiliated Faculty in Women's Studies?

As an interdisciplinary program, Women's Studies brings together faculty from across the campus. These scholars teach, research and/or service the University in areas related to Women's and Gender Studies.

We have several co-curricular events throughout the academic year as well as an academic conference each spring and your help with planning and promotion of these events would be most welcome. There are multiple opportunities to connect with students and faculty with similar interests in gender through our programming, especially the monthly brown bag series, which is an informal lunch discussion, held every month during the fall and spring semesters. We have the Edna Maynard Gott Memorial Library in 123 Doak Hall that contains videos and books on women’s and gender issues that are available to be checked out. Also, if you have courses taught from a gender and feminist perspective that you would like for us to advertise to our students or, in the case of undergraduate courses, apply to have them cross-listed please let us know.

Your support and active interest in the continued growth and development of the Women’s Studies Program at Texas Tech University, is greatly appreciated. We welcome your involvement with our program because it is through the efforts of dedicated faculty members like you that the program continues to carry on its mission of supporting both undergraduate and graduate-level teaching, research and co-curricular programming for the women and men on this campus and in the community.
