The work of the Center for Women and Gender Equity is an outward
demonstration of our values. In all aspects - our daily administrative
work, our programming, our advocacy and activism - we strive to make
these values visible. They serve as benchmarks for helping us
Diversity: We embrace the unique differences among people and the
complexities of our multiple and intersecting identities.
Equality: We acknowledge that oppression and inequities exist in
society and strive to make opportunities and resources genuinely
available and accessible to all.
Collaboration: At the core of our work lies our relationships with
the campus and broader communities.
Advocacy: We work with individuals and within institutions to give
voice and remove barriers to equality.
Activism: As catalysts for social change, we empower others and
engage in intentional actions designed to improve the lives of people,
communities and societies.
Student-Centered: It is our priority to learn from and with students
and to partner with them in their lifelong learning.
Celebratory: We practice the ritual of celebration to recognize
individuals and communities as we strive to reach our collective potential.
Learning: We create and implement high impact educational practices
that bridge research, theory and practice.
Mentoring: We are committed to providing developmental partnerships,
both formally and informally, to enhance personal and professional growth.
