The Center for Gender Equity

The Center for Gender Equity seeks to create a campus culture where all students, faculty, and staff can achieve their personal and professional goals while being true to their gender and sex. In addition to creating open dialogues around masculinity, we also build awareness around topics that disproportionately affect women- and female-identified people.
