The Women's Center alone cannot erase or challenge all sexism on campus. Our efforts must be combined with other units, departments, campus organizations and community members to promote a fair and equitable learning and working environment. You can contribute to this effort.
How to get involved
We offer volunteer and internship opportunities for anyone interested. Both provide a way to get involved with women's issues, to be creative about your work, and to make a contribution.
