Mission Statement

TSU’s Women’s Center’s mission is to provide vital and comprehensive services that address the needs of the whole person by hosting programs and workshops that speak to the emotional, intellectual, physical and financial well-being of the TSU woman.

The Director and Women’s Center volunteer advisory boards hope to encourage retention and academic success for freshman, upperclassmen, transfer and non-traditional students by providing specialized support programs and referrals to community resources inclusive of on- and off- campus communities. The Center will aid students in identifying opportunities for academic success and positive personal development.
