NCJW Women & Gender Studies Program
The NCJW Women and Gender Studies Program at Tel Aviv University, established in 2001 with a $1 million endowment by NCJW, educates and nurtures students to see the world through a gender lens and become agents of social change in Israel for years to come. This groundbreaking program — the first bachelor degree-granting program of its kind in the Middle East — uses an interdisciplinary approach to teaching and research through over one hundred courses from the faculties of Law, Humanities, Art, and the Social Sciences. The program stresses critical analysis of the role of women and other minorities in institutions of all kinds, public and private. Hundreds of students, including men, have enrolled in the program to date, and the first degrees were granted Summer 2004.
