Welcome to the Women's Center

a unit of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

The UCSD Women's Center is a space in which people work collaboratively to foster the educational, professional, and personal development of diverse groups of women. The Center provides education and support to all members of UCSD regarding gender issues, with the goal of promoting an inclusive and equitable campus community.

Since opening in 1996, the UCSD Women's Center has served as a safe space and home environment for people of diverse backgrounds offering support, information and resources on gender and family issues.

At the Women's Center we work to:

  • Increase awareness and understanding of issues pertaining to gender, family, and the equality of all sexes
  • Explore the meaning and impact of diversity in women’s lives
  • Facilitate discussions on gender issues which enrich the educational, research, and creative climate on campus
  • Facilitate experiential learning, promote self-awareness, foster leadership development, encourage dialogue and challenge traditional notions of diversity
  • Provide information and referral support services on gender-related issues
  • Create networking opportunities within and across diverse communities to enhance the experience of women at and after UCSD
  • Provide support to the campus community on gender and family issues
