Research

“Engaged research” is a guiding principle of the Center’s interdisciplinary history, and it shapes all our programs. This philosophy of education and inquiry focuses on the responsibility of universities to the communities that house them. Emphasizing reciprocity, accountability, and the tight relationship of theory and practice, engaged research is founded on an insight that has shaped feminist and gender studies for decades: the innovations that help us to better understand the root causes of injustice and to make a better world are fundamentally collaborative.
