UW Women's Center

Our Mission

To create a more inclusive and compassionate society by promoting gender equity and social justice through educational programs and services that allows all participants to succeed in life.

Women’s rights are human rights.  We envision a society where women and men work together to transform social norms.


All of our programs and services contribute to core elements of the University of Washington’s Mission (excerpted):
The University of Washington is an integral part of a large and diverse community and seeks broad representation of and encourages sustained participation in that community by its students, its faculty, and its staff. It serves both nontraditional and traditional students. It extends educational outreach and opportunities to many who would not otherwise have access to scholarship, research, and public service.
