Dear GWS Alumni,
As we launch this new newsletter, we want to do more to celebrate all that you have done since graduation and help you connect with other alumni doing similarly great things in the world. To do this, we’re asking all alumni to fill out a survey sharing any accomplishment, milestones and other updates you would like to share with us and other alumni. Did you get a master’s degree or PhD recently? We want to know! Did you get a job or a promotion? We want to share that with the whole alumni community! Have you done something you’re really proud of in the world? Let us celebrate with you! We’ll publish these updates from alumni in upcoming newsletters and you can even let us know if you would like a more extended feature in our alumni spotlight. We know that all of you are using the knowledge and skills you gained with your Gender & Women’s Studies majors, certificates, and/or LGBTQ+ Studies certificates to make the world a more just place for women, trans and gender non-conforming people, people of color, queer people and disabled people. We are regularly inspired by the informal updates we receive from you and want to make this a more formal, permanent process for the GWS and LGBTQ+ Studies community. We look forward to reading about your lives and impact on the world after your time with us.
