The Women’s Center exists to provide programming and support for women-identified students and their allies on campus. Women’s Center works to improve status of women in higher education
The Women’s Center exists to provide programming and support for students across a wide range of issues that relate to gender, equity, and justice. Our comprehensive, intersectional, and welcoming approach to the community allows for uplift for individuals of any background and women-identified students and their allies to feel protected and adequately represented. Our programming and services cover a variety of topics, needs, and special interests that allow for community and engagement to manifest. These programs and services cover, but are not limited to, violence against women, women’s empowerment, women’s health, and other identities that are plagued by systematic oppression. Overall, the approach of the UIS Women’s Center is intended to be intersectional, recognizing that not all of those who may identify as women experience life the same way.
The Women’s Center is located in the Student Life Building Room 11 and is generally open 9am to 5pm Monday through Friday.
