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.

The Domestic Violence Awareness Keynote is sponsored by the Women's Center, Black Student Cultural Programming Board, the Multicultural Center, Division of Student Affairs, Ebony Minds, Scripps College of Communication Diversity Committee, Senate Appropriations Commission, and the Student National Medical Association.

The goal of the 365 Conversation on domestic violence is to start the conversation, not just through a hash tag on social media, but through a plan of action to eliminate abuse of all forms and violence from relationships and to eradicate sex trafficking. DREA Kelly’s healing words offers openness to receive and self-reflection.
