The Women's Center Mission

As part of the Division of Student Development, The Women’s Center works to expand the understanding of gender issues, empower students to explore options in their lives, and motivate the campus community toward greater involvement in these issues as leaders, allies, and agents of change.

Working collaboratively with on and off campus services and programs, The Women’s Center strives to support women’s equity and achievement toward intellectual, professional, and personal goals; participate in the formulation and review of campus policies, procedures, and programs relating to gender equity; and enhance students’ lives through programs addressing the diverse backgrounds and experiences of all people.

The Women's Center Vision

The Women’s Center envisions a University campus where individuals of all genders, sexual orientations, physical and mental abilities, and racial and ethnic identities are respected and valued; where the community works collectively for diversity and inclusion and against inequity, injustice, and violence; and where all individuals feel safe, supported and empowered to pursue their intellectual, professional, and personal goals.
