The Research and Scholarship component of CWIL is a think tank where the best minds come together to augment knowledge about the way human cultures interact and about the roles of women in today's global reality. The teaching, research, and program components are shaped by the fellows and visiting scholars interacting with students, faculty and departments at Saint Mary's as well as the South Bend community, the state of Indiana, and national and international groups.
- Fellows are invited for one to two year appointments with academic departments to do research and teach courses relating to cultural or women's leadership issues.
- Dissemination of CWIL's research and scholarship is facilitated through on-campus colloquium series througout the academic year, on-line resources, and through national conferences.
- Co-sponsored events support collaborative intercultural programming. Intercultural leaders brought to campus have included Mary Robinson, Maxine Hong-Kingston, Winona LaDuke, Peggy MacIntosh, Jill Ker Conway, and Shirin Ebadi.
