The Connecticut College Women’s Center’s mission is to educate, advocate, and create an environment where gender issues are discussed critically. As a community, we recognize the role of intersectionality in feminism today, and strive to represent the diverse and evolving needs of women and men in relation to gender and social justice. By engaging the community through programs, we are helping to influence and challenge the conversations around the role of intersecting identities in contemporary society.

We manifest our mission by:

  • Fostering a space that is bias-free and safe for discussing critical issues related to gender equity.
  • Hiring a staff that is sensitive and knowledgeable about the many issues we seek to address.
  • Developing programs that raise awareness about gender equity, celebrate the accomplishments of women and gender equity advocates, and empower students across multiple identities to engage in dialogue.
  • Collaborating with various student organizations, offices, and academic departments in an effort to build solidarity within the Connecticut College and local New London community.

Our warm and welcoming space is located in the Smith/Burdick basement, right below Smith dining hall.
