The Institute for Gender and Women's Studies [IGWS] is a multi-purpose and interdisciplinary center that serves scholars, activists and policy makers interested in gender and women's studies in the Arab world, Southern Mediterranean, Turkey, the Caucasus, Iran and Africa. The primary function of the Institute is to serve as resource nexus within and through which research projects, educational programs, conferences, workshops, seminars and policy debates on gender and women's issues are engaged. The institute is well-positioned to benefit from the critical mass of faculty representing a variety of disciplines across the university, that teach courses, conduct research and publish on a wide-range of gender-related issues.
