Professor Catherine Squires has agreed to serve as the Director of the Race, Indigeneity, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Initiative (RIGS).

This initiative will establish a recognizable intellectual hub that builds upon the interdisciplinary strengths of individual units -- African American and African Studies, American Studies, American Indian Studies, Asian American Studies, Chicano and Latino Studies, and Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies--to make productive connections to other units across the College and the University.
