WGS Affiliated Faculty

Return to Affiliated Faculty page | Go to Affiliated Faculty Application Form


The status of affiliated faculty carries no financial or teaching obligations, but it does represent an expression of your commitment to the advancement of women's, gender and identity studies at Texas Tech.

We do have several opportunities for engagement with the Women's Studies program if you wish. We have several co-curricular events throughout the academic year as well as an academic conference each spring and a colloquium in the fall 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 259 Drane 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.

Thank you for your active interest in the continued growth and development of Women's & Gender Studies. We welcome your involvement with our program because it is through the efforts of dedicated faculty members like you that we can continue to carry on our mission of supporting both undergraduate and graduate-level teaching, research and co-curricular programming for all on this campus and in the community.
