The Institute for Gender, Race, Sexuality and Social Justice (GRSJ) at the University of British Columbia (UBC) offers Undergraduate, Masters and PhD programs committed to ensuring critical advances in knowledge, democratic communities, and equity in scholarship, research, and teaching.

Located on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) people, we are a community of faculty members, practitioners, students, research and support staff, engaged in innovative theoretical and empirical work that advances and enriches current knowledge and critical dialogue about culture, politics and public policy in local, global and transnational contexts.

The GRSJ graduate and research community include scholars from various departments and faculties at UBC. Our faculty stands at the forefront of innovative critical and intersectional feminist and post-colonial research. The institute’s research centres on diversity, equality, gender, racialization, sexuality, community, representations, and interconnections.
