Faculty Affiliates


IRWG faculty affiliates make up a core group we look to for creating collaborations, meeting like-minded scholars, and participating in planning sessions and brainstorming lunches in order to build ambitious research projects.

Affiliates will be listed on the IRWG website to facilitate networking, to strengthen our connections across campus and across disciplines, and to make us more visible and helpful to each other. See our list of over 180 current faculty affiliates.

Faculty affiliates also take part in Expert Advisory Panels, who convene for lunchtime conversations and reviews of each other's grant proposals and other similar written work. Co-facilitated by director Anna Kirkland, and director of research development, Dr. Jocelyn Stitt, these regular meetings include IRWG affiliates, postdoctoral fellows, and other gender scholars from the 3 campuses, with lunch provided in Lane Hall. Attendees will receive a copy of the work to be reviewed in advance. The goal of these panels is to augment our faculty networks and to spur interesting, new relationships and ideas.


Open to researchers and faculty on all three University of Michigan campuses. Gender may be the primary focus of your work, or it may be just one part among many.

IRWG faculty affiliate is not a formal HR title and it carries no new obligations, nor any funding.
