The University of Texas at Arlington offers unique educational services for women through three administratively separate but collaborating programs that focus on women's interests and needs. These programs, each with its own coordinator, are officially designated as the Center for Women's Studies, the Women's Center, and Transitions: Displaced Homemakers Center.
Women's studies at UTA is not at present a formal program. The courses are offered through receptive academic departments. Women's studies faculty and students are engaged in research, teaching, and learning with an academic orientation and are consultants to and participants in activities at the Women's Center. It is a decided advantage to have Women's Center staff involved in women's studies, and equally important to have women's studies people committed to the programs and services of the Women's Center.
