About the Women's Center
Mission and Values
The Women's Center at UTC is committed to creating a community of diverse and empowered students through the following core values:
Awareness: Educating our community on gender and social injustices
Activism/Advocacy: Engaging our community in addressing issues of gender equity and social justice
Collaboration: Facilitating education and activist efforts in our community by supporting other social justice organizations and causes
Leadership: Developing and empowering students to engage in ethical behavior based on feminist principles of leadership
Community: Creating a community of acceptance and celebration of diversity
The Women's Center at UTC first opened its doors in October 2008. The Women's Center grew out of the Transformation Project, our violence against women education and advocacy program. With the support of Chancellor Roger Brown, the Women's Center took its place on the third floor of the University Center. Since its creation, the Women's Center has become a strong community of students and community members dedicated to principles of social justice and gender equity.
Over the years, the Women's Center has grown to include an Assistant Director of Education and Programming. We hope to continue our growth in the future to include a dedicated victim/survivor advocate and educator and a position dedicated to LGBTQQIA education and programming.
