"A mother's vision includes tough nurturance, survival love, a demanding state of grace. It is a vision slowly forming from the body of work created by women. I imagine a wide and encompassing room filled with women lost in concentration. They are absorbed in the creation of an emotional tapestry, an intellectual quilt."      --- Louise Erdrich, The Blue Jay's Dance  
The Gender Institute's
Award for Excellence in Mentoring
The Gender Institute and the Experiential Learning Network award merit scholarships to UB undergraduate students who are interested in conducting research related to women and gender.
As a research center rather than an academic department, the Gender Institute itself does not offer courses, but we promote curricular innovation and academic courses related to women, gender, and sexuality offered by departments and schools throughout the University at Buffalo. The courses featured here highlight just a few of UB's outstanding gender-related courses.
