Women's Center

What We Offer


The Women’s Center offers a comprehensive array of programs, services, and resources to meet the needs of students of all genders. These include: 

Gender Violence Support Services Program 

Services gender violence advocates provide: 

  • Support/processing related to an experience of violation or abuse, dating/relationship/intimacy issues, or concern for a peer/friend/partner  

  • Provide options and information on campus, criminal, and civil laws, policies, reporting, legal processes, and victim rights  

  • Safety planning and assistance with campus supportive measures  

  • Assistance with filing a lease termination form or a Harassment Restraining Order  

  • Identifying needs and referrals to campus and community resources/support  

  • Educational resources on relationships, sexuality, feminist and gender issues 

One-to-one services are delivered by certified advocates who have undergone at least 40+ hours of training on gender violence issues. Advocates provide confidential, non-victim blaming, trauma-informed support for students of all genders who have experienced sexual violence, relationship/partner abuse, stalking, sexual harassment, exploitation, and trafficking. You do not need to report to get support.
