The Women's Center
Empowering Women for the Betterment of Society
Welcome to the Women's Center at Tennessee State University!
We envision a safe, diverse environment that will help to improve the lives and working environment of all women at Tennessee State University as well as the surrounding community. Students, faculty and staff can:
- learn about resources available on campus and in the community,
- receive assistance in a crisis,
- engage in intellectual and stimulating discussion,
- or simply enjoy a place of meditation and relaxation.
The center develops and sponsors programming that enhances the skills of women and assist in their development as scholars and professionals. Lastly, the center works closely with the university's Women's Studies Program to provide academic courses that explore issues of gender, sexuality, and inequality through examination of the lives and efforts of women.
The Women's Center collaborates with various community organizations to provide opportunities that are more equitable for women through advocacy, outreach and support.
