Department Chair: Elizabeth Groeneveld
The Women's Studies Department at Old Dominion University, established in 1977, was the first such program in Virginia, and in 1995 became the first among state-assisted schools in the Commonwealth to offer a baccalaureate in women's studies. Now a department, Women's Studies has been notable for its faculty and curriculum development and for multicultural and global emphases. In Fall of 1995, Old Dominion University became the first state-assisted school in Virginia to offer a major as well as a minor in women's studies.
