The Women’s Initiative for Network Development (WIND) was founded by Dr. Kathleen Cunningham to promote supportive relationships among women faculty and graduate students.
WIND organizes regular professional development meetings to discuss issues of concern to women scholars, both in the department and in the profession at large. These social gatherings are designed to break down barriers between faculty and students at different stages of their careers, and often introduce GVPT women to faculty and graduate students from other political science departments in the region.
The WIND listserv also provides a way to share questions, ideas, and information to a network of women scholars.
For 2020-2021, WIND is led by Dr. Virginia Haufler and graduate assistant Renee Ding.
