Welcome to the Women's Educational Center!

The mission of the Women’s Educational Center is to support women and all students, staff, faculty, as well as community members, in their academic goals; to deepen and enrich awareness of and education about gender issues; and to oppose inequities and barriers imposed on women.

We envision a world in which people of all genders are equally valued and safe; confront no barriers related to economic, political, or social practice; and have equal opportunities to participate in transforming their communities.

We value:

Integrity

We treat all those we serve with dignity and respect and strive to create a safe space for women.

Education and Learning

We value education and learning as transformative processes.

Collaboration and Partnership

We collaborate with campus organizations, faculty, staff, students, community members and groups to meet the needs of women.

Advocacy

We practice care, empathy, recognition, and autonomy in advocacy efforts on behalf of women.

Social justice

We believe in transparency and feminist activism that works for the economic, political, and social equality of all people.

Women's Autobiographies Writing Group


Every Thursday through April 2015
Alvin D. Loving Lounge,  University Center
Please bring your own lunch.

During these lunch hour meetings we will spend 30 minutes writing about our memories. We will then spend 30 minutes sharing them and discussing the historical and collective contexts within which our memories and experiences emerge. Please feel welcome to join, especially if you have never written about your life before. By the end of the summer you will have collected several vignettes that you can even use to write your own memoir or autobiography.
