Womyn's Center Services

Womyn’s Center Programming

The Womyn's Center hosts events and sponsors fun and educational programming throughout the academic year that is dedicated to empowering the lives of women on campus and in the greater community. Annual events include the Welcome Back Open House, Take Back the Night, and Self-Defense each Fall. The Womyn’s Center supports a series of events in early April each year for Consent Week. Additional educational programming around bystander intervention, sexual assault and domestic violence prevention, gender representations in the media, and special topics important to students/staff/faculty on campus are scheduled throughout the year. Follow us on social media for update information about scheduled and recurring events.
