Creating a safe and non-sexist environment at
Supporting a strong and diverse feminist community
at SCSU and in the surrounding community
Engaging in activism to challenge institutional
and individual sexism.
Providing and facilitating new leadership in an
effort to transform a culture to one in which women's perspectives,
achievements and scholarship are valued.
Offering feminist models for teaching about attitudes
and values that are supportive of diversity by race, sex, religion,
sexual orientation, physical ability, class and other differences
that traditionally divide people.
We are committed to:
Providing the highest quality services possible
to our constituents
Respecting differences and working toward greater
diversity and inclusiveness
Defining our work from varied feminist perspectives
around women's culture, women's oppression and women's resistance.
Demonstrating civility in all discourse
Responsible use of fiscal and human resources to
serve students in fulfilling the goals of Student
Life and Development and the University mission.
In summary, we are a group of women and men, diverse in all sorts
of ways, but all committed to social justice and women's liberation.
The Women's Center, alone, cannot erase or challenge all sexism
or other forms of discrimination and oppression. Our efforts must
be combined with other departments and organizations, faculty, staff,
students and community members to promote justice, equity and a
safe and welcoming learning and working environment for all.
