Gender-based violence is so pervasive that it has been declared a global health crisis. Carnegie Mellon University’s Lisa Tetrault, Candace Skibba and Jess Klein will co-teach a course on this topic, part of the Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences’ new Grand Challenges Freshman Seminars, which tackle significant social problems using an interdisciplinary approach.
