Old Dominion UniversityWomen & Gender Equity Center

The Women & Gender Equity Center(W&GEC) is committed to providing inclusive spaces that value the many identities and lived experiences of our Monarch students. During this time of societal uncertainties, please know that the W&GEC is a safe space for care and reflections. We welcome you to engage and connect with our team as the need arises. We are here for you and please take the time to self-care.



Our Mission


The Women and Gender Equity Center offers programs and services designed to educate, activate, and inform, as well as to promote gender equity, empowerment, and leadership while addressing the unique challenges and opportunities faced by and afforded to students of marginalized genders and those who've historically faced systemic oppression. Recognizing the critical and valuable role that people of all identities across the gender, race, ethnicity, class, ability, and age spectrum play in promoting a safe and inclusive environment free of gender bias and inequity, the Center's programs, services, and outreach are designed to encourage students to be agents of change, advocates, and allies so all students may achieve their personal, academic, and professional potential.
