Fourth Annual CSWGS Seminar and Practicum Reception
The Seminar and Practicum combines critical research training with community service in the greater Houston area. Rice undergraduates partner with community-based organizations to design and execute a research plan that addresses sexuality, gender, or women’s lives and directly benefits the communities served.
On April 20, 2012, we celebrated our fourth year of the Seminar and Practicum, and the following nine student-led projects that bring together work with diverse communities:
