Women’s & Gender Center

We are a comfortable, inclusive, and fun place for students to hang out, meet new friends, and have good conversation. Students of all gender identities and sexual orientations are welcome to call this place home, and we hope you will! We also facilitate educational and supportive programming around our three major themes.

The WGC is a space for everyone.

We provide specific support for students whose gender identities and sexual orientations are traditionally marginalized in our culture–thus focusing on female-identified, transgender, gender-nonconforming, and LGBTQ+ identified students.

Cisgender men are encouraged to be a part of the center as advocates, allies, activists, friends, and supporters. We welcome discussions and opinions, and we do not tolerate bigotry, racism, or hate of any kind. We strive to meet people where they are, encouraging healthy, inclusive, and friendly language and behavior.

Three Educational Themes

Empowerment & Leadership Development

We host programming that aims to empower women and celebrate their accomplishments. We help women on our campus nurture confidence, bravery, and self advocacy skills.

Gender Identity & Sexual Orientation

Serving as an inclusive and comforting space for Champlain’s LGBTQ+ community, the Women’s & Gender Center provides a platform for discussions and support.

Sexual Violence Awareness & Prevention

The Women’s & Gender Center is committed to educating the community about bystander intervention, sexual violence prevention, and survivor resources.

Space & Events Photos

For me, the Women’s and Gender Center is a safe place to ask questions and make mistakes. It is also the place I go on campus to be more productive and socialize with others.
