The Women and Gender Program is committed to providing resources and support to our community. To that end, our center supplies the following resources for students: pads and tampons, sexual health resources, books and films, self-care items, and more. We also have computers where students can work and print, a kitchen with a microwave, and a bunch of comfortable couches. This is not an exhaustive list.
We strive to be your home away from home and we are constantly working to expand our offerings. If you have any ideas for resource that we should include in the Women and Gender Program, please email us.
