Welcome to the UH Hilo Gender and Women’s Studies Program

The Gender and Women’s Studies program at UH Hilo promotes an interdisciplinary understanding of how race, class, sexuality, nation and other elements of diversity intersect with the study of women and categories of gender. Our mission is to cultivate active leadership skills and a sense of responsibility grounded in a critical social justice approach to individual and collective transformation in Hawaiʻi and beyond.
