Mission


The purpose of this organization is to encourage and support scholarship, excellence, and activism in Gender & Women’s Studies at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh. We come together to recognize students who have excelled academically in Gender & Women’s Studies, and to foster feminist scholarship, promote personal growth, and increase awareness of issues pertaining to gender, race, class, sexuality, and other intersecting dimensions of identity.  

The benefits of joining include a lifetime membership after induction and the opportunity to network with like-minded individuals with similar aspirations and goals.
