Women's Center's COVID-19 Response

All Women's Center staff are working remotely until further notice. For assistance, please email us at womenscenter@wiu.edu.

We at the Women's Center and Western Illinois University have been closely monitoring the development of COVID-19. The health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and community members are our top priority. Following state-wide guidance, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all events through the end of the spring semester. We will keep you updated regularly, including if and when events will be rescheduled. 

Please visit our social media channels for further updates and online engagement opportunities. For questions about WIU's response to COVID-19, please check the University's website for the most up to date information.  


The Western Illinois University Women’s Center supports a welcoming and gender-inclusive campus community. Student development is at the core of our work. We advocate for gender equity through examinations of feminisims, sexism, patriarchy, and misogyny. We lead the campus community in explorations of how gender is a social construction that influences power dynamics, and intersects with all other identities, such as, but not limited to: ability, age, citizenship status, ethnicity, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic class. We promote opportunities to celebrate women, collaborate in programming and outreach, and seek unity and understanding.
