CSW provides a vital environment within which scholars explore new frontiers of knowledge about women, sexuality, and gender. CSW draws on the expertise of our Executive Board and Advisory Committee, all distinguished scholars in their own fields, to develop, and refine our mission.

The Executive Board meets as often as necessary, at least once a quarter, to handle quarterly governance and undertake the advisory role originally assigned to CSWAC as a whole.

CSWAC as a whole meets on a quarterly basis and will provide networking opportunities by incorporating mini-research presentations by one or more faculty. The primary goal of this larger body is to create an intellectual, research community where faculty will gather to exchange and discuss new scholarship.

CSWAC members are appointed by the Dean of Social Sciences. If you are interested in joining CSWAC, contact CSW at csw@csw.ucla.edu.
