Every spring, the Gender and Women’s Studies program organizes the Gender and Women's Studies Student Research Conference to highlight and celebrate gender focused work produced by students from across the university during the previous year. Undergraduate and graduate students present their work on panels or through performance. The afternoon culminates with a keynote address by a nationally recognized scholar or performer. The conference is free and open to the public.
The conference is presented with The Greater Philadelphia Women's Studies Consortium and will feature work from students from many regional universities and colleges.
Parking is available in the I-1 Parking Garage on Ithan Avenue. Also easily accessible by train, just get off at the Villanova stop on the Paoli/Thorndale Line, Septa Regional Rail.
