Marquette’s Institute for Women’s Leadership announces 2024 Interdisciplinary Summer Grant program awardees

The Institute for Women’s Leadership Interdisciplinary Summer Grant program seeks to foster interdisciplinary research collaborations across the university that further the campus community’s understanding of gender and sex. In its fifth year, the program continues to help fund research and support efforts to grow research into larger extramurally funded projects, while recognizing that research on gender/sex spans many disciplines and that gender/sex intersects with many fields. IWL’s Interdisciplinary Summer Grant program supports projects involving collaborators from two or more disciplinary backgrounds or traditions. 

The 2024 IWL Interdisciplinary Summer Grant program awardees are: 

  • Gender and First-Year College Students’ Use and Attitudes towards AI in Education
    • Principal investigators: Dr. Lillian Campbell, associate professor of English; Dr. Gabriel Velez, assistant professor of educational policy and leadership; and Dr. Jenna Green, assistant teaching professor of English 
  • Gender Differences in Leadership for Collegiate Varsity Athletes
