Professor Vivien Ng Women's Gender & Sexuality Studies Endowment
Established by Vivien Ng, Ph.D., professor and chair of the Department of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies, this endowment provides support for LGBTQ programming and initiatives occurring within UAlbany’s Department of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies.

The Joan E. Schulz Endowment
Established through the generosity of Professor Judith Fetterley, this fund provides support to, initially, underwrite an annual lecture in Women’s Studies in honor of Joan E. Schulz, Ph.D., distinguished citizen of the University and founder of the Women’s Studies Program. During her years at the University, Dr. Schulz has been known for her dedication to teaching and feminist activism. To honor this commitment, the topic of the annual lecture will focus on the connection between theory and practice, academic knowledge and feminist activism, and shall be designed to celebrate the joyous feminist vision, life and spirit embodied by Dr. Schulz. The annual lecture shall be held on or around November 12, the date of birth of Elizabeth Cady Stanton, a 19th century feminist whose life has been an inspiration and a model for Dr. Joan Schulz. Distributions relating to the Fund shall provide income to fund an annual lecture and eventually a Visiting Professorship.
