Women’s Center

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 offers information, support, advocacy, referrals, and programming on a variety of gender-related issues: sexual violence and harassment, relationship and dating violence, and stalking.

We offer UIS Women’s Self-Defense classes and the WhistleStop – info tags, lanyards, and whistles for all students. We also organize and offer empowering and community building events: the global

#WhatIReallyReallyWant, the national It’s On Us Pledge Campaign for ending sexual violence on campues, My Dream of Peace, 10 Paper Cranes to Heal the Violence, Take Back the Night, One Billion Rising – and many TGIFridays from Make Dorm Décor, to Goddess Masks to Mehndi Hands and Friends.
