Women's Center Mission
Via education, advocacy, resources, and services, the Women's Center supports and empowers women and men to unite as equal partners and become leaders on campus and beyond. The Center works to reduce violence against women and sex discrimination, to promote women's physical and mental health and well-being, to celebrate the past and present achievements of women, to highlight the struggles of women on campus, nationally, and all around the world, and to generate dialogue about women, gender, and sexual politics. Ultimately, the Center strives to encourage students' engagement as informed citizens here and beyond so that MSU's campus is safer, more inclusive, supportive, and equitable community.
Consistent with the mission of the University, the Women's Center supports and enhances a student-centered learning and living environment. We strive to offer challenging and engaging educational experiences, form partnerships with various community agencies, and reach out to local public schools via a mentoring program and/or other each opportunities. The Center values service learning, supports student activism, and encourages creative endeavors aimed at awareness and prevention.
