LOGAN -- Utah State University is creating a center to bolster women's and gender studies programs.
USU Provost Raymond Coward announced the plan Monday.
The idea is to combine various women's and gender studies programs in one place and house them under one roof.
USU President Stan Albrecht said funding for the project is about $500,000.
The facility will get $100,000 from a planned tuition increase.
The plan for the new facility is in its early stages.
Over the coming months administrators will look for a director, decide which USU college it will be housed in and where it will be physically located.
