SWAG Research Forum (Sexuality, Women, and Gender)


                                                                SWAG Logo

In order to expand the research that we present to the UNI community, we have renamed the CROW Forum to SWAG, representative of issues related to Sexuality, Women and Gender. If you are interested in presenting your research or would like to suggest a faculty member for the forum, please email!


SWAG Research Forums are held on the first Monday of each month (Oct-Dec, Feb-Apr) at 12PM in Rod Library, Room 301, unless otherwise noted.  Faculty, staff, students and members of the wider community are invited!
