About the School for Cultural and Social Transformation:
The School for Cultural and Social Transformation, known as Transform, was formed in 2016 through a merger of ethnic studies, gender studies, and disability studies. Today, Transform has expanded to also include Pacific Islands Studies. The School is focused on comprehensively examining the way bias, bigotry, inclusion, and equity are centered and thought about and providing cutting edge scholarship and critical interventions for a broader community.
Through combining innovative scholarship, coalition building, and practical expertise, Transform is revolutionizing the study of shifting sexualities, changing genders, dynamic immigrations, and emergent struggles against all racist thought and actions. Beyond the degree programs, minors, and certificate programs described below, students are prepared to read and think on these topics critically, thereby participating more thoughtfully in all their coursework and throughout their lives.
Transform is composed of two divisions:
Ethnic Studies was officially established in 1973, on an interdisciplinary/interdepartmental basis with separate programs for Black, Chicano/a, and Native American Studies. An Asian Pacific American Studies program was added in 1989, an ethnic studies major degree was approved in 2011, and in 2016, the Ethnic Studies Program became the Division of Ethnic Studies now housed within the School for Cultural and Social Transformation. The unit’s expertise lies in forging critical awareness and knowledge of racial and ethnic differences and how these have shaped the landscapes we all live in. This includes a focus on the distinctive social, political, cultural, linguistic, and historical experiences of racialized groups in the United States. Utah’s program is the only degree and tenure-granting ethnic studies division in the intermountain west, resulting in prominence across the country. Degrees include a BA or BS in Ethnic Studies and minors in 1) African American Studies; 2) Indian American Studies; 3) Asian Pacific American Studies; 4) Chicana/o & Latina/o Studies; 5) Ethnic Studies.
Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary field that focuses on interactions of gender with race, class, sexual orientation, and nationality. In addition to its focus on the history and achievements of women, gender scholarship has inspired research and curricula that address men’s lives, masculinity, and the lives of people who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender. Utah’s Gender Studies Division offers a space for the study of a wide range of feminist thought and practices: theory and community-engaged learning; activism and professional development; lively debate and professional skill building. Degrees include a BA/BS in Gender Studies and a minor in gender studies, as well as a gender studies graduate certificate.
The School also includes two programs:
The Pacific Islands Studies (PI Studies) Interdisciplinary Certificate provides students with training in the field of Pacific Islands Studies that can be integrated with their major. The course of study is designed to facilitate integrative learning, providing students with opportunities to make connections between their major and the PI Studies Certificate and to think critically and reflexively about complex problems and their contexts. The Certificate also provides students with opportunities to think globally, as the required courses offer broad historical and contemporary knowledge about the Indigenous Pacific and the global Pacific Islander diaspora. Overall, the goal is for students to grasp a more nuanced understanding of historical and contemporary concerns in Oceania as they relate to diasporic issues locally.
Disability Studies is an interdisciplinary field that explores social, political, cultural, and economic factors that shape disability; considers the ways disability is understood and constructed across different historical moments, cultures, and nations; examines the intersectional relationships amongst disability, race, ethnicity, class, gender, and sexuality; and foregrounds the experiences and perspectives of disabled activists, scholars, artists, and thinkers. The Disability Studies Initiative at the University of Utah oversees an undergraduate Disability Studies minor, facilitates connections between campus faculty and staff who study or teach disability, and organizes disability studies lectures and events. The program has recently implemented new curricula and developed a campus-wide Universal Design and Access ( UDA ) Committee.
