WELCOME TO THE WOMEN’S CENTER
The NC State Women’s Center is one of four Campus Community Centers (along with the GLBT Center, Multicultural Student Affairs, and the African American Cultural Center) housed under the Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity (OIED).
The mission of the Women’s Center is to build and create a community of authentic and engaged allies and leaders to pursue gender equity and social justice; enhancing the campus climate through education, advocacy, support and leadership development.
Forty-seven faculty, staff and students of color departed campus on Friday, November 10, 2017 to embark on NC State’s first Women of Color Retreat. The retreat, an inaugural program of the Women’s Center, moves beyond a diversity and inclusion rhetoric and engages in inclusive practices that claim space and reclaim the stories of experiences of women of color at NC State.read more
