The Center for Gender and Development Studies is grateful to have received two gifts that enable us to continue to host our Visiting Scholars program. CGDS Patron and Champion Ms. Jan Warner, pictured below, 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, American University of Iraq, Sulaimani Board of Governors President and CGDS Champion, generously contributed travel funds. Before receiving this funding, CGDS hosted three visiting scholars, who contributed to the center’s activities, including the gender studies minor. 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.
