In 2011, the Feminist & Gender Studies Program (FGS) developed the Student Advisory Council (SAC), which provided FGS majors and minors with myriad opportunities to serve as leaders within the program.
In August 2016, FGS revised the SAC after becoming an official chapter (Delta Mu) of Iota Iota Iota (Triota), a National Women’s Studies Honor Society with over 50 chapters nationwide, “Iota” selected to represent three goddesses Inanna, Ishtar, and Isis. Triota strives to maintain the feminist values central to Women’s Studies and encourage diversity, egalitarianism, and a supportive academic environment for all students. Triota also encourages volunteerism, advocacy, and activism within the community as important methods for promoting and maintaining the feminist values central to Women’s Studies. The Delta Mu Colorado College chapter:
- assists with The Monthly Rag by contributing at least one entry per year and by encouraging the submission of entries from students within and beyond FGS;
- plan and implement programs (in collaboration with student organizations and other departments/programs), including, but not limited to, film screenings, sessions and panels, workshops, and guest speakers;
- support and represent FGS during on and off-campus events, such as New Student Orientation, Homecoming Weekend, Winter-Start Orientation, Open House, academic fairs, alumni events, and pre-registration;
- develop and maintain networks with other feminist organizations at neighboring colleges and universities, the American Association of University Women (AAUW), and other Triota chapters, for example;
- represent FGS at the National Women’s Studies Association annual meeting.
