About IRWG

Lane Hall is home to IRWG.

Welcome to the Institute for Research on Women & Gender! We’re here to foster collaboration and further the research of all U-M faculty members and graduate students who use the lens of women and gender to pursue their studies.

IRWG provides direct research funding and valuable expertise to those seeking external funding.

IRWG sponsors a wide variety of lectures, symposia, and other forums geared to faculty and students in all disciplines, at all levels. Many of our free programs appeal to the general public.

IRWG enables faculty members to design their own multidisciplinary, multiyear programs that examine significant issues related to women and gender.

IRWG is located in Lane Hall, a newly renovated building with a long history. Lane Hall features many inviting spaces, including the main floor "parlor," where faculty and students can meet casually, debate current issues, and learn more about each other’s work. Drop by anytime!
