|Über uns||This is the official Facebook page for the Women's Center of Eastern Connecticut State University. Content is managed by multiple members of the Center.|
|Mission||The Women’s Center is a safe space that serves to advance the personal growth and intellectual development of all students, mainly by examining gender relations in today’s society.|
The Center hosts interactive workshops, guest lectures, and panel discussions throughout the year that cover a variety of topics: healthy relationships, gender representation in the media, positive body image, social justice campaigns, and self-care techniques. While the Women’s Center focuses primarily on issues affecting women, the Center is striving to better address the issues that men and gender non-conforming students face as well. To this end, the Women’s Center often collaborates with organizations like M.A.L.E.S., F.E.M.A.L.E.S., N.O.W., and the Pride Room.
In line with Eastern’s mission of providing students with an experience that is academically and socially enriching, the Women’s Center is also a primary connection to the Sexual Assault & Interpersonal Violence Response Team. This team, known as the SAIV-RT, responds to all forms of interpersonal violence, including but not limited to sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, and stalking. The SAIV-RT can explain reporting options, provide advocacy and counseling, and address other campus concerns such as housing accommodations or academic intervention.
