Heather Laube

Associate Professor (Soc)

Chair of the Department of SOC/ANT/CRJ,
Program Director of Women's and Gender Studies Program

Office: 526 French Hall

Office Hours:   Tuesday and Thursday 10:00-11:00, and by appointment

Courses: Gender and Society, Social Movements in America, Intro to Sociology, Sociology of Families

Dr. Laube identifies as a feminist sociologist and her scholarly, teaching, and service activities reflect that perspective. She teaches Gender & Society, Sociology of Families, Introduction to Sociology, and (occasionally) Social Movements.

Dr. Laube’s current scholarly work centers around the ways the gendered (and raced, classed, etc.) structures of academia shape the experiences of women, especially feminists, and other marginalized groups.

Dr. Laube is currently serving as Faculty Fellow for Mentoring in the Thompson Center for Learning and Teaching. In this role, Dr. Laube is conducting research on faculty needs and faculty mentoring programs, as well as re-designing and implementing the Faculty Mentoring Program at UM-Flint.

In the Flint community Dr. Laube has participated in the successful work to create a K-2 Montessori option in the Flint Community Schools.
