Gender Equity Center
The Gender Equity Center, started in 1997 as the Women's Center, furthers an inclusive campus culture at JWU by engaging our community in issues relating to intersectional feminism, non-toxic masculinity, gender identity/expression, sexual orientation, and power-based personal violence prevention and response.
The center, staffed by a professional director as well as student staff and volunteers, can help students navigate university resources and services relating to its purpose. Students from all JWU campuses who are seeking support and assistance for a range of information or personal issues can contact the Gender Equity Center via email or phone; for contact information for the Gender Equity Center or the director, as well as location and hours, please consult the JWU Directory.
The center provides educational programming to the university community, including co-advising the ASK! Student to Student Wellness & Equity Educator program. The center supports power-based personal violence prevention work, including bystander training, awareness raising and harm reduction on all JWU campuses. The center can provide resources and referrals to resources within the university and greater community.
Students at the North Miami, Denver and Charlotte campuses are also encouraged to contact their campus dean of students for more local information and resources regarding gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, and sexual assault and relationship violence prevention.
