Women’s and Gender Studies is an emerging department focused on introducing students to the centrality of gender across the disciplines. WGS courses critically examine its origin, impact and meaning in society both domestically and around the world. WGS uncovers how gender intersects with race, class, sexuality, and ethnicity as it seeks to understand the ever-changing definitions of what it means to be gendered beings. At its core, WGS promotes equality and acceptance.

It is awesome here at the FDLTCC Education Program because it is like a family here, if you need help or are struggling with anything, you have quite a few people who will help you out.

My favorite thing about FDLTCC is the people. I’ve met fantastic students, faculty and staff who go above and beyond what I expected.

I chose FDLTCC because of its size and the curriculum. When I first came here in 2019, I was just looking for what I needed to volunteer, perhaps in a crisis shelter. I met with Don Jarvinen, and the rest is history.
