Grand Valley State University Women's Center
We invite you to engage with us!
Located in Russel H. Kirkhof Center (down the hallway near the Lobby Shop), there are numerous ways to get involved with the Women’s Center:
- Attend one of our events. With numerous and diverse events each year, there are many opportunities to learn more about issues that affect women and gender justice. Learn more about our annual programs.
- Resources and Support. Check out our resources, including our Student Food Pantry, Scholarship Opportunities, and who to contact to report a sexual assault.
- Service, Leadership, and Activism. Whether you’re interested in our Ambassadors Feminist Leadership Program, service learning through Activate, or an internship with the Women’s Center, there are lots of ways to engage and bring classroom material to life.
- Our physical space. Open to everyone of all gender Identities, people use our Center to study, read our collection of books and magazines, or just relax between classes. From our comfy chairs and couches to the warm fireplace, check out our virtual tour to get a glimpse of our location and then come check us out in person.
In the wake of recent tragic events the Black Faculty Staff Association, the Office of Multicultural Affairs, and other units across campus, stand in solidarity with the communities who are particularly impacted. As we continue to think about the victims and their families, we must also remember to be there for one another – on campus - to listen, support and comfort. Every day, during the week of July 11 - 15, there will be informal gatherings from noon – 1:00 p.m. in the Office of Multicultural Affairs, 1240 Kirkhof Center. Feel free to bring your lunch. This is a space for any faculty, staff or students who want to support and comfort one another.
In his speech, President Obama said "when incidents like this occur, there's a big chunk of our fellow citizenry that feels as if because of the color of their skin they are not being treated the same, and that hurts... that should trouble all of us.” He went on to emphasize that "this is not just a Black issue, it's not just a Hispanic issue — this is an American issue that we should all care about... [and] all fair minded people should be concerned."
