A quick history
Brooke Macnamara, a Ph.D. student in Psychology, started GWD in 2011. She initially got funding from the Graduate School for ten 3-hour sessions per semester for 25 participants per session. Due to the popularity of the program, the program was expanded to 40 participants per session. Currently, the program management is being transitioned to the Academic Affairs Committee Chairperson of the GSG to ensure that the program continues.
