Steering Committee Student Representatives

December 10, 2015 • Categories: Alumni and Students

Gender Studies welcomes our first two student members to the Gender Studies Steering Committee: 

Dominique Duverney is a Junior majoring in Gender Studies with a Supplemental Major in Peace Studies, and 

Angel Matos is a PhD candidate in English with a Gender Studies Graduate Minor.

The Gender Studies Steering Committee includes as part of its membership one undergraduate and one graduate student representative in a non-voting capacity. Because Steering Committee members work with the Gender Studies administration to develop the Program’s academic curriculum and programming, they welcome students’ input on their experiences within Gender Studies, as well as discussion of students’ academic needs and interests.  The student representatives are elected by their peers and serve one-year terms.  They attend all Steering Committee meetings and bring student views and concerns to its members. The student representatives are excused from those parts of the meetings involving discussion of individual students and faculty in the Program. Following Steering Committee meetings, the representatives report back to their fellow students, informing them of upcoming events and new initiatives within the Program.…

Call for Stories - Loyal Daughters and Sons

The Call for Stories has been extended to December 10th!
 
Loyal Daughters and Sons, now in its 10th year, gathers anonymous stories from community members about gender issues, gender identity, sexuality, and sexual assault at Notre Dame. We then take those stories and adapt them for the stage, so that we can tell the stories that otherwise would not be heard. You may have seen our "Tell Your Story" posters, featuring anonymous quotes about many of these issues, around campus. Those are some of the stories other people have shared anonymously, with us or on social media, and now we want to hear your story.…
