Mission & Vision

The Women’s Center strives to create an educational and professional environment that supports women and promotes gender equity.

Toward that end, we foster spaces to reflect on individual and collective experiences and identities; develop co-curricular programming around women’s and gender issues; support professional and leadership development; and identify and advocate for policies to improve gender climate and inclusive practices at the institution.

As part of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion within the Office of the Provost, the Women’s Center works with and advocates for students, faculty, and staff, and is open to all members of our community.
