Celebrating Women and Gender Minorities. Empowering All.
Advocacy. Celebration. Education.
Visit us in the Main Campus Student Center Suite 108 next to the Ticketing Office
Monday-Friday from 9 am-5 pm.
As part of the Department of Intercultural Affairs within Student Life at ECU, the Women and Gender Office (WGO) works in conjunction with our sister centers the Ledonia Wright Cultural Center, the Dr. Jesse R. Peel LGBTQ Center, Military and Veterans Resource Center, and the Center for Leadership and Civic Engagement, to help prepare students with the knowledge, skills, and values, to succeed in a global, multicultural society. We work each day to develop tomorrow’s leaders to serve and inspire positive change.
Opening in Spring 2019, the WGO seeks to serve students, faculty, and staff at ECU from our office in the new Student Center. Our resources include: a lending library, a social and collaborative work space, and office space for our staff. The WGO offers educational programs and events throughout the year focused on advocacy, celebration, and education. Additionally, the WGO collaborates on campus-wide initiatives and events such as NCivility Summit, a program aimed at promoting understanding and positive change on ECU’s campus and beyond and Pledge Purple, a yearlong initiative focused on education and advocacy with the goal of ending sexual violence, harassment, and bullying.
While the WGO will primarily provide educational programs and services to support women-identified students and members of the ECU community, all gender identities and expressions and/or gender equity allies are welcome. We invite you to check us out and visit our new office!
