Welcome!

The Women's Center was founded in 1994 to serve the students, faculty, and staff of Virginia Tech. Our mission is to promote a Virginia Tech community that is safe, equitable, and supportive for women and that celebrates their experiences, achievements, and diversity.

A unit of the Office of the Provost, the Women's Center functions in a number of areas:

  • Individual Services, Counseling, and Advocacy
  • University-wide Advocacy
  • Educational Programming
  • Outreach
  • Gender-based Violence Awareness
  • Student Engagement through Volunteerism

Thank you for visiting our site.

Please feel free to explore the site or to visit the Center on the Virginia Tech campus.
