Established in 1995, the Institute for Research on Women & Gender (IRWG) is an interdisciplinary unit of the University of Michigan Office of Research, supporting faculty and graduate student research on women, gender, and sexuality.

Each year, we also sponsor a variety of speakers and events to foster intellectual exploration and social change.
