Women's Center

About Us

Mission

We advance women across identities and advocate for gender equity through transformative programs and services. 

History

The Women's Center, founded by a coalition of student, staff, and faculty activists, opened in 1989 in response to a demand for women’s equal educational opportunities, greater safety, and gender-related resources at St. Cloud State University. Throughout its rich, 32-year history, the Women's Center has provided educational programming; a comprehensive array of services to students experiencing gender violence, harassment, and discrimination; scholarships for nontraditional women students; institutional advocacy for policies and procedures supporting gender equity; leadership and professional development opportunities; and more. We create solutions and collaborate with other members of the campus community to address inequity, oppression, and opportunity related to gender and its intersections.
