What is
?

Our full name is the School for Cultural and Social Transformation, but that’s awfully long, so we’ve adopted the nickname Transform. We feel like it embodies what we are, do, and feel.

We are a new college home for the Divisions of Gender Studies and Ethnic Studies and the Disability Studies Program, which share cutting-edge concepts, faculty, and space. Our goal is to forge the wave of the future for the study of shifting sexualities, changing genders, dynamic immigrations, and emergent struggles against all racist thought and actions.
