Affiliate status in the Women's Studies Program at Kent State University is granted to faculty who demonstrate, through teaching, research, or practice, interest in feminist theory and women's issues.
WMST minor students will need to choose a WMST affiliate when designing and planning their Practicum and Individual Investigation courses. (Students are also encouraged to provide feedback to the WMST Director should they feel that any WMST course lacks sufficient focus on feminist theory and women's issues.) Faculty members who wish to pursue Affiliate status should submit their vitae, any representative syllabi, and a 1-page letter addressing how they meet the above requirements to Kathe Davis, WMST Director either by email or by campus mail to Kent Campus Women's Studies Program. Affiliates are invited to meet once a month to review the program's curricular affairs, student enrollment, research issues, and future directions.
The following faculty are currently Stark WMST affiliates:
