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.

Our Values

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.
