Each spring, the ACTC (Associated Colleges of the Twin Cities) Women's Studies Consortium holds a student conference to highlight the work of our students. Majors and minors are especially encouraged to attend, but any student can submit an appropriate presentation topic. Students who have participated in a cross-listed Women's Studies course may wish to present papers they have written or groups of students may choose to form panels to present research on similar topics.
The conference offers the opportunity to meet students with similar interests from other ACTC schools, the chance to gain skills in public presentation, and the opportunity to learn from peers. It is always enjoyable and enlightening!
On Friday, February 27, 2015, from 3:30 to 7:30 pm, the 2015 Women's Studies Student Conference was held at the University of St. Catherine. Nine UST students gave presentations to the largest crowd of attendees ever. The conference was followed by a concert by the band Kitten Forever.
The 2016 ACTC Women's Studies Student Conference will be held on Friday, March 4, 2016 at the University of St. Thomas.
