Gender & Equity Center

The Gender & Equity Center has a mission to promote, advocate, educate, and support the women of Shawnee State University and the community at-large.

In the Gender & Equity Center we do focus on issues pertaining specifically to women, but larger than that, this is a place created to support our population of women students with whatever their need might be, whether gender-related or not. Let us support you as you strive to realize your full potential while here at SSU.

Please keep us in mind and stop by for:

  • Academic support
  • Professional guidance
  • Relationship support
  • Gender-related issues
  • Self-image and identity support
  • Need of a lactation room/resources
  • Support for parenting while being a student
  • Just to find a safe and welcoming space on campus where you can connect and become involved in our mission
  • Or any other matters we might support you in...

This is a safe space on campus where students can receive a listening ear, support, and encouragement as they walk through whatever comes their way in life. Please help spread the word that we are once again open and functioning.
