Women’s and Gender Studies supports programs and research which examine the status, expectations and achievements of women on a local, regional and national level. The program is also committed to working closely with community members to provide support, programs and resources related to women's health, career opportunities, elevating the image and self-esteem of women and advancing the status of women. Through close cooperation with faculty, staff, students and the larger community, women’s and gender studies is dedicated to promoting equality and social justice in all forms while focusing on the needs of women at MSU Billings and the community.

The program supports the end of all discrimination based on gender, disability, ethnicity, gender identity, race, sexuality and socioeconomic class. In support of these goals, the program promotes cooperation with faculty and students across campus as well as community members to share their concerns, experiences and expertise to promote equality through seminars, special speakers, panel discussions and referral services and works closely with faculty and students involved in the Women’s Studies minor.
