GWS Basic Needs Fund Heading link

Flier announcing that GWS raised 4,000 for the program's Basic Needs Fund. The letter and numbers are a mix of shades of purple and blue against a white background.

Fall 2022 Gender and Women’s studies (GWS) at UIC launched a campaign to establish the Basic Needs Fund as part of our commitment to the collective care of our students.

Collective care is a practice with roots in disability justice. It is both the act of mutual aid and the practice of nourishing sustainable, interdependent community-based practices of care. GWS’ Basic Needs Fund addresses institutional barriers that students face when attempting to access emergency funds from UIC.

Thanks to all who contributed GWS was able to raise $4,000 to replenish the Fund!

Thank you for showing up for our students!
