A Resourceful Space

The Women's Center is here to advocate for the best educational and working environment for all genders at the university. We accomplish this by fostering your personal growth and working toward societal change and community understanding. Our office provides a variety of resources such as work, lounge, and meeting spaces, a lactation room and toys for children, a lending library with over 2,000 volumes, and computer and printing capabilities. We seek the advancement of women and people of all genders through activism, leadership, and empowerment.

Resources

Scholarships and Financial Aid

There are a variety of resources available to help support you financially through your college experience. If you are looking to apply for scholarships or have questions about what kinds of financial aid you can receive, please explore these resources.


Support

We want you to have a truly exceptional college experience. In order to do that, we have resources to help you through whatever types of challenges you might face. As a part of our community, you are important and we want you to have the support that is best for you.


Prevention Resources

As Ducks, it is important that we do our best to have healthy relationships. That can mean knowing how to ask and give consent or be there to support a friend. Our resources can help you get connected with information and services to build healthy relationships and feel safe around campus.


Child Care and Lactation Stations On Campus

If you are a parent as well as a student, we have resources to help you. You may be eligible to receive financial support for child care, and our work-life resources might be beneficial to you. There are also a number of lactation stations around campus for your convenience.

Erb Memorial Union (EMU) Amphitheater

The Women’s Center is beyond excited to invite you to join in-person at our annual Take Back the Night Rally, March and Speak-Out Against Sexual and Domestic Violence on Thursday, April 25th, 2024 starting at 6pm in the EMU Amphitheater!

TBTN is a yearly international protest founded in 1976 which seeks to raise awareness about the realities of sexual and domestic violence on campus and in the community, both for survivors of sexual and domestic violence and those who want to support and bear witness in solidarity.

 TBTN is a survivor-centered event that begins with a Rally in the EMU Amphitheater at 6pm, continues at 7pm as a  March through the streets of Eugene to symbolize reclaiming people’s safety on public streets at night – and ends back on campus for a Speak Out in the EMU.

The Speak Out will be student-led (with non-university affiliated licensed mental health providers available nearby for confidential assistance) during which survivors can share personal stories of how sexual and domestic violence has impacted their lives. Snacks, beverages and blankets will be provided. *We ask that no UO Professional Staff or Media be present during this portion of the event to provide a sacred space for students to have dialogue circles of peer to peer support.*

 Our theme for the 2024 event is being formed, and we will update this space once it is solidified.

As always, the Women’s Center is committed to providing this essential event to support survivors, educate the community and prevent future harm.

 PEOPLE UNITE! TAKE BACK THE NIGHT!
