Students' Association for Gender Studies Engagement (SAGE)

Scholarship. Activism. Growth. Engagement.

SAGE is a social and academic organization supporting feminist/queer students. The Center for Women's and Gender Studies wants to create a responsive community for WGS majors, minors, LGBTQ/Sexualities Studies scholars, and like-minded students.

SAGE provides a casual space on campus for feminist/queer students to discuss their futures, important social justice topics/events, self-care practices, and artwork.


SAGE is open to all students, WGS majors/minors, LGBTQ Studies, and certificate students.
