The Upcoming Fundrasing Event:

The Advisory Council of the Center for Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies invites you to a Zoom party to celebrate Professor Josephine Beoku-Betts, who recently retired. We’ll be collecting stories and memories to help us fundraise for a scholarship in her name.

On April 14, 7:00-8:00, join us for a Zoom party to support students at FAU.

Have memories to share? Email with photos and to sign up to share your stories about how Dr. Beoku-Betts shaped your education and your life.

Have friends and family who want to support feminist studies at FAU? Invite them to the event and share the link to the fundraiser:
