Women and Gender Initiatives


"Women and gender programs serves to empower students to explore issues of gender and identity across social, historical, and cultural contexts. Through collaborative workshops and programming, students cross-examine systems of power and inequality as they shape all aspects of life: political, social, and personal."

Achieved Through Various Discussion Groups:

  • Para Mujeres
  • Pride Talk
  • Sistertalk
  • Taboo Talks
  • The Hub

SISTERTALK: A group for sharing and discussing issues relevant to the African American community, it is a great place to engage in campus activities, explore academic concerns, and establish friendships while in college.
