Women's Center

Mission & Goals

Mission

The Women's Center strives to advocate for change in order to create and maintain a climate that enhances the quality of life for all members of the college community. This is achieved by bringing institutional attention to policies and practices that impact women. The Women's Center works in partnership with other college offices and departments to address the needs of all women at the College.

The Women's Center facilitates connections between students, college resources, alumni, staff, faculty, and members of the broader community through collaboration. The Women's Center also encourages leadership by supporting student-initiated programs and provides training in leadership skills. The overall mission of this office is to empower women and men by creating opportunities to learn more about feminist theory and gender issues that impact our lives.

 

Unit Overview

The College at Brockport's Women's Center is a judgment free space where students, faculty, staff, and community members can discuss past, current and future women's issues. The Women's Center actively discusses women in a wide array of circumstances such as; politics, religion, sexual assault, healthy relationships, reproductive freedom, equity, body image, education and sexuality. Our extensive library, campus and community partnerships, and other resources are a valuable asset to the campus, and provide students with the knowledge they need to defend their personal values and beliefs. You can also find the Women's Center and its staff participating in major campus events such as Clothesline Project and Take Back the Night, Residence Hall Programming, HIV testing days and Spa Nights. We also provide students with Rape Crisis Services once a week and have direct access to a counselor for more emergent issues.
