Our Mission and Values
The WSU Women’s Center advocates for the best educational experience for all by addressing systemic oppression, empowering communities, and working toward a shared vision of gender equity in pursuit of a safe, inclusive, and compassionate campus.
Gender Equity - We aim to strengthen and improve the lives of women and their communities through increasing pathways to resources and opportunities.
Intersectionality - We affirm the dignity and worth of all individuals and strive to center the experiences of marginalized communities. We are committed to the ongoing integration of, and emphasis on, power and privilege across the core components of our work in recognition of how gender intersects with other points of identity.
Advocacy - We provide comprehensive support and advocacy services to victims/survivors, focusing on immediate and long-term safety, empowerment, dignity, and hope. In collaboration with the community, we strive to end violence through education, accountability, and social justice.
We enact our values of gender equity, intersectionality, and advocacy through our three programs: Safe@Weber Violence Prevention & Advocacy Services, Education & Empowerment, and Leadership & Engagement.
