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.
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.
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.
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.
Take Back the Night is a yearly international protest founded in 1976 which seeks to raise awareness about the realities of sexual violence on campus and in the community, both for survivors of sexual violence and those who want to support and bear witness in solidarity.
Take Back the Night is a survivor-centered event that begins with a Rally in the EMU Amphitheater, continues as a March through the streets of Eugene to symbolize reclaiming people’s safety on public streets at night, and ends with a Speak-Out in the community during which survivors and their allies can share personal stories of how sexual violence has impacted their lives.
TBTN is organized by the UO Women’s Center in coalition with Sexual Assault Support Services of Lane County (SASS) and the University of Oregon Campus Community.
