Supporters & Resources

Women's Center

The K-State Women's Center works to promote a safe and equitable work and learning environment for women and all people through advocacy, presentations, academic classes, training, and referral. Social justice is our unifying mission for a variety of individual and community efforts. Since 1973, this office has supported the well being of K-State women by providing advocacy and promoting gender equity. More recent initiatives involve campus culture change efforts such as nonviolence education, the Empty Bowls Project, and programs for men. Over 200 K-State men and women from all majors comprise W.A.R. (Wildcats Against Rape), a student group dedicated to raising awarenessofcampus sexual violence.

Our focus has moved upstream from acts of violence. We no longer simply react to crises, but work to change the environment of our community. An harmonious community naturally will display less violence.

Our goal is to provide caring services to students, as well as their friends and family, during times of need.
