Research Working Groups

The Rutgers CGSLP working group initiative seeks to facilitate research collaboration across disciplinary areas and between the University and community partners to advance inquiry with important implications for gender- and sexuality-based equity. CGSLP working groups draw together scholars from across the University to pursue innovative, multi-disciplinary, publicly-engaged scholarship.
