Women and Gender Studies Center

Welcome to the Women and Gender Studies Center!

The mission of the Women and Gender Studies Center bridges academic coursework with student development, leadership, and coalition building.

Our purpose is to link with academic programs, University Life units, and the Northern Virginia community to provide learning experiences that educate about gender issues and issues of special importance to women; to provide a safe psychological and physical space for all women and gay, bisexual, lesbian, and transgender populations; and to support our academic programs.

We host lectures and participate in important programs such as Take Back the Night and Women's History Month to raise awareness and promote a sense of community on campus.  Learn more about our events, access women's studies resources, and get involved.
