Since 1974, we have been celebrating, honoring, and empowering our campus community. We do this through a diverse range of educational programs, resources, and advocacy for all people.
The Center for Women and Gender Equity (CWGE) is a confidential resource where you can report incidents of sexual misconduct (dating/domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and harassment). We will provide you the support and resources you need to take your next steps.
CWGE promotes a campus culture and climate that supports principles of social justice, equity, inclusion, and community. We advocate for a campus community that values the safety, equality, and intellectual advancement of women and historically marginalized groups at West Chester University.
CWGE provides education, resources, and advocacy primarily on gender-related issues. We facilitate, sustain, and advance dialogue about how gender intersects with race, ethnicity, class, sexual identity, ability, age, and nationality.
Our mission is accomplished through:
We are not a health clinic, but we can answer questions about your health concerns. Visit Student Health Services in Commonwealth Hall for your women's health services.
No, we do not offer pregnancy tests. However, if you think you might be pregnant or are pregnant, we can provide you with resources and support. Student Health Services can provide pregnancy tests or you can pick one up at your local pharmacy.
Yes! Our Masculinity Project focuses on the impact of gender on our everyday experiences. We encourage men to participate in all of our programs.
Our student staff is funded through work study. Contact us if you are interested in working for the Women's Center.
