A Message from the Graduate Program Director

It is with much pride and admiration that I announce the first class of graduate students at Wake Forest who completed the Graduate Concentration in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.
Though graduation this year is not what we all pictured, we want to recognize and celebrate  the achievement of these courageous, earnest, and eager students who, while deepening their studies, have refined a lens through which to view the world. I am deeply grateful for their hard work, their commitment to justice, and their enthusiasm in embracing activism, advocacy, and knowledge, as well as compassion and care . It is truly inspiring, especially in this historical moment, to be able to transform education into tools that will re-shape our world into something that is worthy of us in all of our differences. I am so excited for the next chapter in their lives. 
 
My warmest congratulations !
 
Prof. Wanda Balzano
