Women's Center at Virginia Tech

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 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.

Events & Programs

Little Hokie Hand Me Down
Little Hokie hand Me Down is a program for graduate students and staff members with kids. Due to COVID related precautions we will only be able to have a limited number of people in the multipurpose room at a time and so are trying to make the process easier with an advance sign up. Shopping hours are Wednesday, 11/11 from 10am-6pm for graduate students and Thursday, 11/12 from 10am-2pm for graduate students and staff. 

Gen(der) Ed Podcast
Conversations that explore the intersection of gender and other identities, and cover topics on leadership, equity, wellbeing, and healthy relationships. Join us in celebrating the experiences, achievements, and diversity within our campus community.


Kids’ Night Out Update
In light of health and safety concerns for both the children that attend and the volunteers who provide the sitting service for us, the Women’s Center haas made the difficult decision to suspend Kids’ Night Out for this semester. We plan to re-evaluate this decision in the spring, and hope to be able to resume this important support service to parents as soon as it is safe and reasonable to do so. In the meantime, if you have needs or questions about childcare issues, please check out our weekly newsletter.
