Women's Center at Virginia Tech

The Women’s Center is celebrating 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. We have an exciting semester of programs and events to mark this significant milestone, and we invite you to join the celebration.

Message from the Women's Center

All of us at the Women’s Center are dedicated to fostering a Virginia Tech community where every person who lives, learns and works at this university feels safe and supported. We know that, unfortunately, sexual assault and other forms of interpersonal violence are a reality that impacts far too many members of our community. Please know that we are here for you. You may be a victim. A survivor. A friend. A roommate. A classmate. A family member. A professor. An advisor. It doesn’t matter who you are or what role you occupy, the impacts of interpersonal violence are deep and far-reaching. We want to make sure you know we are here for people of all ages, genders, orientations, races and ethnicities, immigration or citizenship status, and religious or spiritual background. The Women's Center is here for you. Our counselors and advocates are here to support and advocate for you. Our staff is here to talk, foster understanding and support for survivors, and promote bystander action. Please call on us if we can help!

Additional resources include StopAbuse at VT and It's On Us at Virginia Tech.
