Women and Gender Studies Requirement For All KSC Students
We have collectively gathered to address the issue of Women and Gender Studies problems throughout the community and world that people are deprived the proper knowledge of. Today, the underlying depth of gender, sexuality, race and ethnicity often go unnoticed or disregarded by people, causing assumptions and preconceptions about the matter to be made, which can cause a hostile, bias attitude towards the topics. The objective of the Women and Gender Studies classes here at Keene state are to offer multiple perspectives and create an environment for open discussion on the above issues. This ultimately creates an open mind for acceptance and change of standard social norms, in order to create an educated community and eliminate hatred and cruelty towards these topics. Our goal is to successfully implement a strategic plan that stands up for these topics, while bringing attention to them from the school board. We believe that at least one women and gender studies class should be mandatory for all students that attend Keene State.
Our mission statement here by declares our determination to implement the mandatory taking of a basic women and gender studies course for all students at Keene State college in order to educate everyone on the subjects of intersectionality, men, women, masculinity, race, gender, and ethnicity. This goal is created with the intentions to promote a more understanding and accepting community and for everyone to feel safe and welcomed on campus without negative, prejudice assumptions.
