Women's Center

The Women's Center exists to help address issues of gender-inequity and women's well-being by education and engagement in the campus community. The center collaborates with a variety of other offices and organizations, both on and off campus, to help educate and support members of the campus community through several events and programs every semester. We also provide a lending library of books and other resources available on short-term loan to anyone with a current Rohrbach Library account. Computers, microwave, and television (DVD/VHS) are also available.

We are located to the right of the main lobby of Old Main, across from the Information Desk.
Personnel welcome telephone calls and visits from individuals seeking advice and information; all contacts are handled in a confidential manner.
