Congratulations to our Gender Institute Award Winners for 2017-2018!

One of our most important missions is to support outstanding research on women and gender across the disciplines and at every level from faculty to graduate students and undergraduates. As the academic year comes to a close, we would like to recognize this year’s awardees. Many thanks also go to the faculty and staff who diligently served on our review committees. Congratulations to graduates whose time at UB involved the Gender Institute!
