Center for the Study of Women, Science, and Technology
The Georgia Tech Center for the Study of Women, Science, and Technology (WST) links issues in the study of science and technology with those of gender, culture, and society.
Originally an outgrowth of the interdisciplinary Ivan Allen College undergraduate minor in Women, Science, and Technology, the Center is currently supported by the Office of the Vice President for Institute Diversity.
The Center brings together faculty and students to address issues of gender, science, and technology in research and programmatic initiatives at institutional, national, and global levels.
In key characteristics, the Center is interdisciplinary, cooperative, and collaborative, reaching across Georgia Tech and beyond to form partnerships and alliances with faculty, students, and administrators, as well as other universities.
