Celebrate 40 Years With us!

June 19, 2012

The Women Studies Program, part of the College of Arts & Sciences, celebrates 40 years at UNM this year. This makes our UNM Women Studies Program one of the oldest in the United States. 

In 1969, Women Studies was a collective of faculty, graduate students and community members. In addition to establishing the Women Studies Program in 1972 the original collective also contributed to the founding of the UNM Women’s Resource Center and the Albuquerque Rape Crisis Center.  Until 1999, the UNM Women Studies Program offered only a minor and the program now offers a major, a second major and a minor. 

The Women Studies Program has graduated nearly 250 majors and minors since 1986. Currently around 500 students, generating some 1500 credit hours, take courses in the Women Studies Program. 

Take a look at the upcoming events that will commemorate this special historical milestone. We hope that you will join us!
