Women*s Center

 

Strengthening Community, Envisioning Justice

Mission 

Our mission is to engage with the multi-dimensional experiences of women, to challenge patterns of injustice for people of all genders, and to provide a welcoming and inclusive space. We elevate all marginalized voices while prioritizing prerogatives to learn, organize, and support one another as peers and mentors. We foster a community dynamic both within and beyond the Women*s Center that is collaborative, creative, and inclusive.

What's with the asterisk?

In 2018, we updated our name from the Women's Resource Center to the Women*s Center. We kept a similar name to honor the history of the women at WSU, especially the Association of Women Students, which began in 1912. The asterisk is our way of saying there's more to this story. We welcome anyone of any gender. We respect everyone who walks in for who they are.

ROSARIO'S IS NO LONGER ACCEPTING CLOTHING.  DUE TO THE VOLUME AND ISSUES OF CLOTHING NOT WASHED.  WE NO LONGER ARE IN NEED OF CLOTHING DONATIONS.  PLEASE TAKE THEM TO PALOUSE TREASURES.

Message from WSU Women*s Center: COVID-19 response: 

 

Dear students and campus partners, 

 

The Women*s Center staff is sending well wishes during this challenging time.
 
We are reaching out to communicate some changes in our future programming for the remainder of the semester. In accordance to the University Guidelines related to COVID-19 and the recent messages from University Administration and Washington State Governor, Jay Inslee, we are cancelling, postponing, or moving upcoming programming to online platforms that can be accessed remotely. Programming that has been cancelled or postponed is as follows, Mom’s Weekend events and the Women’s Leadership Conference.
 
At this time, the Women*s Center is strategizing to find ways in which students can continue to have access to programming and support that they can access remotely. Connecting with and supporting students are core to our work; we will continue to work with the campus community during this unprecedented time to provide support to each other. Additionally, Rosario’s Place pantry will stay open with regular hours through the rest of the semester. The Women*s Center’s physical location will be closed until further notice. However, the Women’s Center staff will be available through daily office hours VIA Zoom video conferencing. Find hours and Zoom links below. As well as a GroupMe app group chat that can be joined by downloading the app and following the link provided below. instructions for download and the link to follow can also be found below. Both of these platforms are public and will serve as a space for students to interact with each other and Women*s Center staff.

If you would like to request a private Zoom meeting with staff please email us at womens.center@wsu.edu
