The GDST Minor is an interdisciplinary minor open to all Xavier undergraduates and compatible with any major. The minor acquaints students with scholarship on gender and diversity in their broadest, most inclusive sense.
The minor has recently transitioned from a 15 credit hour to an 18 credit hour program. This change is in keeping with other minors at Xavier and has made the minor stronger overall.
The requirements you must fulfill to obtain the minor depend on the year you entered the university. Those entering in 2010 or earlier are held to the old requirements. Newer students have slightly different requirements with the final changes implemented for students entering in 2013.
More than anything else, the program taught me to better understand myself, and as a result, helped me engage with and affirm the unique lives of others. In my work experience and graduate school, that ability has proven indispensable.
