The K-State Women's Center works to promote a safe and equitable work and learning environment for all K-State students through advocacy, presentations, academic classes, training, and referral. More than 150 K-State men and women from all majors comprise the Women’s Center’s student group, W.A.R. (Wildcats Against Rape), dedicated to raising awareness and lowering the incidence of campus sexual violence.

The P.E.E.R.S. (Proactive Educators for the Elimination of Rape and Sexual Violence) class is taught by the K-State Women's Center director and is founded on the belief that students can effectively educate each other on issues about rape and sexual/relationship violence.

The K-State Women's Center sexual assault advocate provides 24-hour assistance for K-State students who have been victimized by violence or who are threatened by biased, hateful, or criminal behavior. Staff members work with individuals who are filing complaints under K-State's Policy Prohibiting Sexual Violence and with offices and agencies on and off campus who can help students with law enforcement, legal, medical, and academic concerns.

We promote a healthy, caring campus through SafeZone, nonviolence works and such projects as the Manhattan Empty Bowls Project.
