About Us

Message from the Director

Lauren M. DeCillis

Welcome to the Galerstein Gender Center website.

Why a Gender Center?

Because gender equality has not been reached nationally or globally.  Because we need to address these issues by embracing the principles, culture and behaviors of our diverse world and celebrate the stories of UT Dallas, the greater community and society.

Drop by, attend one of our events, volunteer, participate in a dialogue…be inspired and inspire others!
