Center for Women & Gender Equity

A Message from the CWGE DirectorThis year we're excited to explore the concept of family--ranging from biological family structures to makeshift families to community connections-- and intersectionality. We offer in person and virtual opportunities on Wednesday evenings at 7pm. Join us on Thursdays between 10am-12noon for our weekly Coffee & Connection program with guest baristas. Cheers to a great year!  Sharon K. Sobotta

The Center for Women & Gender Equity utilizes a collaborative, strength-based approach in supporting and advocating for students, promoting gender equity and inclusivity. It houses gender justice programming and shares space with the Office of Campus Assault Response and Education (CARE)

We are rooted in an empowerment model.

Join us for weekly programs on Wednesdays at 7. (In person and virtual opportunities available). 

Join us every Thursday from 10am-12noon for Coffee & Connection!

We are located on the ground level of Augustine Hall. Please come and visit us!

  • The Center for Women and Gender Equity is a hub of connection and community for women, non-binary, trans and students of all gender identities.

  • It seeks to support women and folks across the gender identity spectrum in their development as they work to find their place on campus, by helping them identify ways to be engaged that support the curricular experience and formulate a post-graduation plan.

  • It seeks to address marginalization and disparities in resources, support, access and opportunities based on gender, and/or sexual orientation, racial, cultural, religious or ideological identities through thoughtful dialogues, discussion, programming and advocacy.

  • It seeks to help make the voices of women and people across the gender identity spectrum audible by intentionally creating spaces for story sharing, story writing, spoken word and healing.

  • The Center is committed to the movement to end violence against women and people of all gender identities (which is a symptom of gender inequity). We work in close partnership with the Office of Sexual Assault & Violence Prevention to continue this work.
