At the heart of the WiSE Research Centre is the ethos of equality, social justice and inclusion.
The WiSE Research Centre is dedicated to the elimination of inequality in society through the creation and dissemination of innovative and transformative knowledge.
WiSE is strongly committed to theoretical interdisciplinarity as well as the application and promotion of feminist, participatory, emancipatory, and transformative methodologies. WiSE activities and achievements uphold the University’s core mission to contribute to beyond the traditional role of a university in the creation, curation and transfer of knowledge and problem-solving skills.
Central to GCU’s commitment ‘For the Common Good’ is its objectives of ‘imbuing a strong sense of global citizenship amongst our students and staff’ and ‘the positioning of critical discourse and creative innovation at the centre of our research and educational activity’ (GCU Strategy 2020). WiSE’ s intellectual, social and emotional capital is aimed at working collaboratively through our research, civic engagement, teaching and CPD work to foster creative interdisciplinary initiatives that exploit new knowledge to inform public policy.
