Women's Center at Virginia Tech

In the spring of 2019, the Women’s Center celebrated our 25th anniversary! Founded in 1994, we serve the students, faculty, and staff of Virginia Tech. Our mission for more than a quarter of a century has been to promote a Virginia Tech community that is safe, equitable, and supportive for women and that celebrates their experiences, achievements, and diversity.
