Welcome to the Gayle R. Davis Center for Women and Gender Equity
Mission: To create meaningful learning about women and gender and to advocate for gender justice through the education, engagement, and empowerment of students and the greater GVSU community.
Women's Center Call for Art and Gallery
Each year, the Women's Center puts out a call for works of art to be displayed in our space. The Center believes that the function of art is to challenge our perceptions and to help us create new meaning and understanding. The Women's Center is committed to using art as a form of expression for gender. The exhibit focuses on a small number of student, faculty, staff, and community member works that celebrate and highlight individual's diverse experiences.
