Question: Is WGST at Mount Allison at risk?
Answer: In spring 2017, three new tenure-track faculty members were hired at Mount Allison with primary or partial cross-appointments in WGST. We believe that these hires will allow us the stability to offer our full course complement each year and to maintain the WGST minor for the foreseeable future.
