Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Department of Women Studies at the University of Washington began as a concentration offered under the General & Interdisciplinary Studies (GIS) in the early 1970s, the result of an Ad-Hoc committee convened in 1970-1971. Sue-Ellen Jacobs, the program's first director, was a strong driving force behind its early development. The Women Studies Advisory Committee was formed in 1974; comprised of students, faculty and staff, members sought progress for the status of Women Studies as an academic department at UW, in areas such as curriculum planning, faculty hiring, and community activism. The Women Studies Program was granted departmental status in 1996.
