Through a variety of educational programs, culturally-diverse events, resource opportunities, and comprehensive support services, Marshall University Women’s Center strives to address the needs of women of Marshall and the surrounding community.
Although departments throughout Marshall University have the shared responsibility to address these needs, the Women’s Center provides a centralized location where Marshall women’s concerns can be voiced, dealt with directly, and/or referred to other resources within the university and local community.
The Women’s Center is a proactive resource for meeting the needs of women students, faculty, and staff. We invite you to contact us today to learn more.
The Marshall University Women’s Center serves to foster the personal growth and development of women as independent, confident, and healthy individuals. We seek to expand understanding within the University community of personal, political and social issues of concern and interest to women. The Women Center is committed to being a multicultural affirming resource through which women of varying race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, ability, and chronological age are encouraged to seek out our services and participate in our programs and event. We strive to be a place for all men and women to gather and explore and celebrate the richness and diversity of life. The center provides information, educational programming, training, referrals, victim advocacy, and services to facilitate education on issues related to feminism, women, men, and gender. The center organizes events of interest to women and men such as discussion groups, speaker series, workshops, festivals, and films. The center also maintains a resource library with information on sexual assault, stalking, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual harassment, women’s health, body image, eating disorders, and date rape drugs.
The Women’s Center is located in Prichard Hall on the first floor. The phone number is (304) 696-3338. We have space for meetings, study, programs, and discussion. Our space is wheelchair accessible.
The Women’s Center is currently open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. We are open all year, and visitors are always welcome!
