  • The Women's Center 


    Women’s Center is a community where students can collaborate on social justice issues. We educate our College community about gender equality by providing support services, sponsoring events, and encouraging conversation and dialogue. Our goal is to ignite awareness and social responsibility about Women's issues and make our campus a safe, welcoming space for everyone.

    Using a Holistic Personal Wellness Model, we foster opportunities for learning and engagement taking into account the physical, emotional, social, environmental, intellectual and academic aspects of a student's life.

    In addition to Personal Wellness, the Women’s Center facilitates:

    • Cultural Presentations
    • Lectures
