Stephanie Griffith '13: Survey of campus attitudes

MAJOR: Marketing
CONCENTRATION: Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies
HOMETOWN: Columbus, Ohio

Bryant's program in Women, Gender and Sexuality (WGS) Studies analyzes how gender and sexuality continue to shape society. In this video, Stephanie Griffith '13, describes the path that led her to become Bryant's first WGS concentrator, and to her research that turned a spotlight on the campus climate as it relates to homophobia and LGBTQ issues.

In addition to support from several faculty members, Stephanie's interests in feminism and LGBTQ issues were supported by the Women's Center staff and resources. After graduating, Stephanie moved to Columbus, Ohio, where she hopes to integrate what she has learned into her marketing career and her volunteer work with the LGBTQ community.
