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.
NC State celebrates Women’s Herstory Month throughout March 2018 with the theme of “Unapologetically Women: Forging and Healing Our Collective Memories.”
We invite the campus community to join us for many important events examining the ways that women have impacted our past and present and how history has shaped women’s issues of today.read more
“When we hear about sex differences in the brain, we tend to believe that these
differences are hardwired- in other words, we assume that sex differences are immutable by virtue of the fact that they are biological. But as scientific as it sounds, this assumption is not supported by the evidence. First-year & transfer students are invited to join us as we talk about the power we have to change our brains through experience and why it matter. Register to participate at go.ncsu.edu/dinnerdiscussion
Feminist Fridays are student initiated and facilitated conversations centered on about topics of Gender Equity.
Need help searching for and citing scholarly peer-reviewed articles? Have a cool project idea that needs special technology? Want some reading recommendations?
