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 every day to reduce violence against women and sex discrimination, to promote women’s physical and mental health and well-being, and to generate dialogue about women, gender, and sexual politics. Ultimately, the Women's Center works to encourage each student to take personal responsibility for creating an environment that is safe, equitable, and healthy for men and women even beyond your time here at Murray State.

Consistent with the mission of the University, the Women’s Center supports and enhances a student-centered learning and living environment. Furthermore, the Center strives to offer challenging and engaging educational experiences and to form partnerships with various community agencies. The Center values service learning, supports student activism, and encourages creative endeavors aimed at awareness and prevention.
