Community Space

The Women’s & Gender Center is a bright, vibrant, safe space for Champlain College students to gather, enjoy each other’s company, and learn. The space is also available for club meetings, community events, and more.

Find Your People

Female-identifying, trans, and gender-nonconforming students are sometimes a minority in their fields of study, classes, and/or residence halls. The same can often be said for people who identify as LGBTQ+. The Women’s & Gender Center provides a space for these populations to come together, be themselves, and talk freely with one another.

We offer educational programming that supports students’ success at Champlain College and beyond. You’ll often find WGC staff and student workers hanging out in the space, ready to engage and show you around! We’re also available to help answer questions and provide resources in a safe and supportive environment.

The Women’s & Gender Center officially opened on the first day of classes on August 29, 2016. The opening of this Center came after years of dedication from countless students, faculty, and staff, and marked a new and exciting chapter for Champlain College. The WGC contributes to the college’s commitment to supporting and preserving diversity and inclusion on campus.
