She joined the faculty of Women, Gender, Sexuality Studies in 1995, before moving to the Commonwealth Honors College as a full-time Associate Dean in the fall of 2018. This award is for current UMass students majoring or minoring in WGSS and doing work preferably but not exclusively on black feminisms or women of color feminisms.
