Biographical / Historical

Women and Development Studies Groups (WDSG) were established on the three campuses of The University of the West Indies in 1982. The St. Augustine campus arm of the WDGS worked to improve gender relations in the society and region primarily through a variety of organized staff development and outreach activities. One successful outcome of the groups' work was the creation of the Centre for Gender and Development Studies across all campuses of the UWI. The Centre was renamed the Institute for Gender and Development Studies.
