Women's Center

Events and Programs

The Women’s Center offers a wide variety of programming throughout the academic year. Our events and programs address issues that explore multiple facets of women’s status, gender, sexism, feminism and equity. Much of our programming is reflective of, and of interest to, diverse audiences. This includes students, staff, faculty and community members, and individuals across the gender spectrum.

The Women’s Center sponsors several events that are ongoing or reoccur annually. More information is provided in the drop down menu. Some events and programs vary year-to-year because they reflect current issues and concerns. Programming is organized by committees of Women’s Center students and staff members.  Student leadership of programming, coupled with a commitment to diversity, is integral to educating the campus community about gender equity issues.
