Our Mission

The Women’s Center for Gender Justice supports student success through the creation of invaluable links between student centered research, peer networking, leadership development and educational programming.  We strive to build community and celebrate intersectional identities through collaborations with entities on-campus and throughout the New York City area to promote gender equity, LGBTQIA+ rights, anti-violence education, and reproductive justice.  The Women’s Center for Gender Justice is a safe space for all women-identified students and their allies.
