Founded in 1974, the Women’s Center was established to:
Dismantle, from a feminist perspective, all forms of oppression, including but not limited to those based on ability, age, class, ethnicity, gender, race, and sexual orientation.
Advocate for an equitable environment free from violence and harassment based on gender, race, and sexual orientation.
Create an anti-racist, non-sexist, queer-affirmative space where all people can feel valued and safe.
Facilitate and strengthen connections among people across lines of difference through programming and educational campaigns.
Integrate an appreciation of Women's Gender and Multicultural Studies across the disciplines.

This semester we are welcoming two new staff members to the Women’s Center. Over the next few weeks this blog will be featuring short profiles of all of the awesome Women’s Center staff members so that you can all get to know your Women’s Center a little bit better!
Another way you can get to know us better is our Open House which will take place next Tuesday, September 14th. This year we will be having an Ice Cream Social, open to the whole campus. Feel free to come on by around 1pm to make yourself a sundae and hear a little bit about what we do.
