Africana Studies

MSU Denver’s Department of Africana Studies began in 1969 with the help of Wilton Flemon, Ph.D., and celebrated Professor Rachel B. Noel. To this day, we’re the only Africana Studies department in Colorado. Our graduates leave the University with prolific intellectual and professional skills, representing us well in the public and private sectors as well as the postgraduate studies they pursue.

Gender Institute for Teaching and Advocacy

The Gender Institute for Teaching and Advocacy's vision is of a queer feminist future in which people and communities are liberated from capitalism, colonialism, white supremacy and heteropatriarchy. We envision a world in which liberated communities live with dignity and without fear. This future involves an intersectional and transnational grassroots movement led by women of color, LGBTQIA+ and working-class people, and other marginalized groups.
