The Center for Research on Gender and Women was established in 1977 as a part of the Department of Gender and Women Studies to advance greater knowledge and understanding about gender and women’s studies both in the US and globally. It promotes scholarly interactions among gender studies researchers on campus, as well as linkages with women’s studies scholars nationally and internationally. It serves as a resource center for public and private institutions as well as women's rights practitioners and activists in Wisconsin, the US and globally. The Center raises funds for and organizes collaborative research projects across campus. It organizes events on campus, sponsors competitions for research funds and awards, hosts visiting scholars, builds institutional partnerships on and off campus, and publishes a campuswide e-bulletin.
