Invite the Women's Center to come speak!

Invite a staff member to come speak in your class, organization, business, church, or other group to share about the work of the Women’s Center or to educate your group on a feminist or violence prevention issue. See more about our current presentation menu offerings HERE. To request a presentation, contact Rebecca at rebecca.kotz@stcloudstate.edu   


Each year, the Women’s Center employs a graduate assistant and paid programming and outreach assistants. We also host graduate and undergraduate interns whose interests match our work. Handshake is the platform we use for applications. Our primary student employment hiring season is in the late spring: March/April. However, we occasionally hire in the fall. Follow us on social media to see hiring announcements. Please contact us with any questions or inquiries! 

Become a trained sexual assault/gender violence advocate

Are you interested in working with victims/survivors of gender violence? St. Cloud State and the Central MN Sexual Assault Center (CMSAC) offer the training required by the state of MN to become a sexual assault advocate. At SCSU, this class is a 3-credit class: HURL 406. The training can also be taken online through CMSAC for $75 fee (or for free if students agree to a one-year volunteer commitment to CMSAC). Check the CMSAC website for more details. 

Women’s Center staff and interns are required to complete this training if they would like to apply for a gender violence program-related internship or employment.
