Dorothy Sue Cobble, Director

Founded in 1976 to provide an exchange of ideas and information among scholars on the New Brunswick campuses, the IRW has taken a leading role regionally and nationally in enabling and disseminating new research and writing on women and gender. The institute brings together several hundred university faculty members and graduate students who are working on gender-related subjects; organizes interdisciplinary lectures, seminars, and conferences; and hosts visiting scholars in a range of disciplines. The institute sponsors a weekly graduate student/faculty seminar. With the financial support of the Rockefeller Foundation, it is the site of a project on gender, race, and ethnicity. The IRW also sponsors an annual graduate student conference.
