Women's Center

Feel Connected on Campus and in the Community

Ohio University’s Women’s Center strives to be an integral part of the university’s transformative learning community and a national leader in its own right. The Women’s Center promotes inclusion, honors difference, and works with faculty, staff, students, and the larger Athens community, to promote academic achievement, active global citizenship, and substantive leadership positions for women in all professional fields, as well as building confidence within women’s personal lives, by using an intersectional, though gendered, lens.

The mission of the Ohio University Women’s Center is to act as a catalyst to promote awareness, education, and advocacy about women, gender, and diversity, among faculty, staff, and students at Ohio University and its surrounding communities.

In fulfilling its mission, the Center provides students, faculty, and staff with information, services, and programs that address matters of particular concern to women - while exploring the connections among gender, race, economic status, sexual orientation, culture, religion, political views, and other significant elements in relation to women’s individuality and collective identity.

Through the Survivors' Lens

Save the Date: Thursday, August 29th, 2019. Trisolini Gallery, Baker 405 (Ohio University). Please attend at 6PM to hear speakers. The exhibit will be open until 8PM.

Through the Survivors’ Lens is a program that will provide a compelling, visual means for provoking thought and reflection within the University community much like the Monument Quilt did in Fall 2017, and the What Were You Wearing Exhibit in Fall 2018. It will display photographs taken by survivors, with captions provided by them to help the viewer contextualize the photograph. The PhotoVoice Art Installation at Athens will open on August 26th, 2019 in the Trisolini Gallery on the 4th floor of Baker, and is supported by the Women's Center, Survivor Advocacy Program, Health Promotion, Counseling and Psychological Services, the College of Fine Arts and University Galleries, Office of Instructional Innovation, Ohio University Libraries, Better Bystanders, Ambassadors to the Survivor Advocacy Program, and the Student National Medical Association. There will be an opening reception on August 28th, 2019, and the exhibit will close on September 14, 2019.
