About Us

 The Gender Studies Group (GSG) convened in August 2007. The GSG operates on the premise that an interdisciplinary group of faculty, staff, students and community members with diverse experiences and qualifications can make a difference at DSU and in the Mississippi Delta by dissecting and understanding gender issues.

What we do…

In general, the group collects and analyzes data to explain current social, political, and economic problems faced by men and women. The group disseminates information, generates awareness, facilitates community engagement, and aims to influence public policy. One of the group’s primary strategies is conducting action research that uncovers policies to create greater opportunities for women in particular and men in general.  Thus, the GSG brings attention and awareness to gender issues at DSU, the Mississippi Delta, nationally, and globally.


The DSU Gender Studies Group hosts bi-monthly Brown Bag Lectures on a variety of topics dealing with gender related issues. We will be hosting our 2nd annual Student Showcase Brown Bag Lecture on April 22nd from 12-1:30pm in the Baioni Center. We are inviting faculty to recommend students (undergraduate or graduate) who have completed an outstanding paper or project on a gender related issue this academic year to submit an abstract for consideration. Up to four abstracts will be selected for presentation. The abstract should include the following information and be emailed as a Word Document to Dr. Leslie Green-Pimentel, Chair of GSG (lgreenpimentel@deltastate.edu) by April 1, 2016. Accepted abstracts will be invited to give a 12-15 minute presentation on their paper/project. All majors encouraged to apply! · Student Name · Student College/Major/Rank · Professor recommending student · Professor’s contact information · Title of Presentation · Abstract summarizing paper/project (150-200 words) Any questions contact Dr. Green-Pimentel

GSG Brown Bag Series

The GSG sponsors a regular series of Friday Noon-time Brown Bag lectures.  Presenters and participants usually consist of students, staff, and faculty members from across the DSU campus and the wider Cleveland community.  These talks cover a variety of topics dealing with an equally varied group of gender-related issues.
