Susan Nelson

I am the undergraduate advisor for Gender & Women’s Studies and LGBTQ+ Studies. I got excited about gender studies my first semester of college. That first gender studies course led to more courses, graduate school, a continued interest in the field, and this role as the undergraduate advisor for GWS and LGBTQ+ Studies students. I have lots of adjacent interests. For example, for five years, I co-taught one of the global health field experience courses on school nutrition and food equity.
