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.

LGBT 9/11 Remembrance

Though the trends are ever-varying and changing, what it is to be "American" in the typical definition and affiliation with the word does not generally include the LGBTQIAP+ community. The tragedy of 9/11, however, is widely mourned, its heroes and victims universally acknowledged. I just wanted to take this time to celebrate those heroes as well, to remind everyone that many of the people who were lost that day were part of our Queer Community, and deserve to be recognized with everybody else.
Please follow this link , if you so wish to learn more about these people, and take a moment to honor them as well and to remember that no matter where you are or who you're with, somebody is one of us.
