The Mather Center conducts original research on gender equity in education; hosts a journal for women's and gender equity centers; produces evaluation research on our programs that we disseminate through research briefs; conducts a bi-annual gender equity report at the University; and supports faculty, staff, and student research related to gender equity through research grants.
