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.

Veteran's Day

In honor of Veteran's Day, we at the Women's Center would like to thank the Americans who work in service, both in the past and currently.  In particular, we would like to praise those who served and continue to serve while feeling unable to disclose their identities.  The repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" is a recent accomplishment, and there are countless veterans who fought for our country in a time when our country did not fight for them.  So today, remember the courage of our queer soldiers in addition to all American service people.  Happy Veteran's Day!
