About Us

The Women's Center exists to create awareness of gender concerns, both local and global. Adjacent to the concourse of Kutztown University's Old Main, the Center's high-profile location draws persons from all backgrounds through its doors. The staff provides resources for students, faculty and the community at large regarding contemporary issues that affect women's well-being. These issues include: work equity, health problems, body image, relationships, childcare, harassment, and violence against women.

From residence hall programming through health awareness fairs to speakers, panels and media presentations, the Women's Center works to keep these issues in front of the campus community by working with community and national organizations, as well as other Women's Centers. Frequently assisting in these projects are personnel from the Women's Studies minor, the Multicultural Center, Counseling Services, the Health and Wellness Center, the Women's Consortium, Commission on the Status of Women, and the GLBTQ Resource Center.

The Women's Center includes a lending library of books, periodicals, articles, and audiovisual resources available on short-term loan to anyone with a current Rohrbach Library account. It also provides playback media for research or leisure time and Internet access.

Personnel welcome telephone calls and visits from individuals seeking advice and information.
