Campus Women’s Center
The Campus Women’s Center was founded in 1983 to confront the multiple oppressions woman-identified individuals face that intersect with other identities such as religion, national origin, disability, ancestry, age, sexual orientation, pregnancy, marital status or parental status. The CWC seeks to eradicate ideologies of domination that perpetuate sexism, racism, classism, ableism, heterosexism, sizeism, ageism, and all other forms of structural oppression. We work toward this goal by providing a variety of support services, educating the campus community on a number of feminist issues, and serving as a resource and referral center for all students. We affirm and celebrate all people’s power to create social change by challenging and transforming institutions and relationships that oppress all marginalized individuals.
Serving every student who walks through its doors, the CWC is committed to valuing each person, irrespective of sex, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, religion, ideas, ability, class, age, health, legal status, education, family structure, or any other aspect of one’s identity.
The CWC is located on the 4th floor of the Student Activity Center, 333 East Campus Mall. Suite 4416.
The Campus Women’s Center coordinates the following child care support services for student families.
KIDS TIME – A volunteer child care program that matches student volunteers with student families with children. The volunteer provides an average of three hours per week of FREE child care services as mutually arranged between the volunteer and the student parent family. The program was initiated in 1993 and serves 20-30 families each year. Student volunteers are interviewed, have background checks and reference checks as part of the screening and matching process.
KIDS NIGHT OUT, a coordinated evening program that is scheduled approximately one Friday night per month to serve student parents who live in Eagle Heights or University Houses. Student volunteers organize these FREE child care activities at the University Apartments Community Center (Eagle Heights). For dates and/or information about KIDS NIGHT OUT activities, contact the Campus Women’s Center.
