IWL Consortium Initiative on WOMEN & HEALTH

The Institute for Women’s Leadership Consortium is pleased to coordinate the new IWL Consortium Initiative on Women & Health, launched in spring, 2013. This ambitious endeavor recognizes that women’s health around the world is shaped as much by social, economic, political and environmental forces as by biology. The IWL Initiative on Women & Health features a two-year series of courses, activities and programs designed to stimulate university-wide engagement around this topic. This collaborative initiative offers unprecedented expertise and Rutgers resources to analyze women’s health and the structural conditions that shape it at the local, national, and global levels.

The IWL Consortium Initiative on Women & Health is coordinated by the IWL and sponsored in conjunction with the Office of the Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs, the School of Social Work, the Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, the Institute for Health, Health Care Policy & Aging Research, the School of Arts And Sciences, the History Department, GAIA Centers, the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, and the Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy.


The IWL Consortium Initiative on Women & Health Request for Proposals aims to provide modest financial support for teams of faculty from any of the Rutgers’ campuses to develop new graduate and undergraduate interdisciplinary courses that focus on women and health. This fund, which has been supported by the Vice President for Academic Affairs, the Chancellors of Rutgers/Newark and Camden, and the Chancellor of Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences, will enable various faculty groups to develop new courses.
