The Center offers a wide variety of programs and events for students, faculty, and staff.
Lunchtime Speaker Series
The Women's Center Speaker Series is a program designed for students that seeks to create interest and awareness of issues facing women in today's society. There is one program each month (usually the second Tuesday unless interrupted by a university scheduled holiday or break). The programs run from 12:15 to 12:50 when scheduled.
Women's and Gender Studies Symposium
The Women's and Gender Studies Symposium is a mini-interdisciplinary conference. It features a keynote speaker and conference sessions on various topics. The Symposium is held at the end of March in honor of Women's History Month. Students are encouraged to attend.
Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Programs
The Center for Women and Gender Equality partners with WRAP to provide prevention and awareness programs to the campus community. Look for programs in October for Domestic Violence Awareness Month and April for Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
The services the Center provide are directed toward students, but anyone in the campus community may take advantage of the services we provide.
The Center provides free period supplies to any student who requires them. Brown bags with supplies are located just outside of the center for discrete and easy access. In addition, we have full boxes available in the Center and at Captainâ?Ts Pantry in the residence halls. We hold a donation drive each October to refill our supplies, but we will accept donations any time.
The Center for Women and Gender Equality houses the only lactation room on campus. Open to students, faculty, staff, and guests to the campus, we provide a private space, comfortable chair, and refrigerator space. Supporting parents is a goal of the center. If you need access to the lactation room outside of business hours, please contact the center director to make other arrangements.
The Center provides space for a WRAP advocate to hold weekly office hours in order to meet with participants on campus. Contact WRAP or the center director for the schedule.
