CGDS Receives Funding for Visiting Scholars

CGDS is grateful to have received two gifts that will enable us to continue to host Visiting Scholars. CGDS Patron and Champion Ms. Jan Warner has provided funds for the Jan Warner Visiting Scholar Program. This is one of many generous donations that Ms. Warner has made since the founding of CGDS in 2015. Dr. Jill Derby, AUIS Board of Governors President and CGDS Champion, generously contributed travel expenses for the first semester of the fund, fall 2020. CGDS has hosted three Visiting Scholars, who have contributed to the center’s activities, including the gender studies minor. Beginning in the fall of 2020, thanks to this funding, visiting scholars will be compensated for teaching one gender studies course and provided housing free of cost, as well as the cost of a round-trip international flight. Calls for applications will go out later this spring. CGDS Visiting Scholars contribute to the diversity of the center’s academic goals, and they ensure the success of the gender studies minor. We thank Ms. Warner and Dr. Derby for their support!
