UCSB Women's Center

The Women’s Center works towards retaining students, staff and faculty and empowering them to be successful within the academy and beyond. We strive for an inclusive and equitable campus community through advocacy, education and support services. The Center promotes an understanding of the role and impact of gender in our lives and our society. The Center challenges sexism, racism, heterosexism, ageism, abelism, classism and other barriers that inhibit full inclusion and equal power in society. This is to help people of diverse backgrounds achieve their intellectual, professional and personal goals and realize their full potential. Through our programs we work to support lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning and ally students, staff and faculty and promote a supporting and accepting climate regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
