Students wearing masks and social distancing on campus.

Office updates during coronavirus pandemic

The GGS department is providing remote and in-person support to current and prospective students.

Updated APRIL 2022

As of August 1, 2021, the faculty and staff of Global Gender and Sexuality Studies have returned to campus and are working in compliance with social distancing and safety measures on campus. We remain committed to supporting students and our broader community in the safest way as we can this year. 

If you require assistance, please reach out to the following individuals for help. We recommend setting up appointments when possible as our staff cover multiple departments and have hybrid schedules.

  • For general questions, or for undergraduate and graduate student support, contact Katherine Phillips at
  • Individuals with business questions should contact Gwynn Thomas at

We wish all of our students, alumni and community partners well duing this challenging time. We advise everyone to keep up-to-date with the University at Buffalo's website dedicated to the coronavirus response. Link is below.
