Gender Studies Advisory Board


GSAB consists of faculty and administrators who teach gender-related classes in their home units, pursue feminist or gender-related research, and/or generally support the Gender Studies Program.  Currently 38 faculty and administrators from USC Dornsife College, Annenberg School of Communications, School of Cinematic Arts, School of Architecture, Gould School of Law, Rossier School of Education, and other areas within USC have joined our GSAB, which meets to advise the core faculty on policy, curriculum, and personnel matters.  In addition, GSAB members may teach Gender Studies courses and mentor Gender Studies undergraduate and graduate students.
