Intersections of Gender

A Signature Area of Research and Teaching at the University of Alberta, Intersections of Gender is an academic hub focused on promoting intersectional gender research, supporting interdisciplinary research collaborations, growing inclusive mentorship and teaching and engaging communities across all sectors on gender and intersectionality.


The Institute for Sexual Minority Studies and Services (iSMSS) conducts timely and often pressing research focused on helping sexual and gender minority youth mediate life in family, school, healthcare and other environments. iSMSS research is intended to advance inclusive policy making as a protective basis for framing and engaging in ethical and informed educational, healthcare, other institutional and community/cultural practices.
