History

The University of Cincinnati Women’s Center is one of the oldest continually operating university women’s centers in the United States. Established in 1978 as Women's Programs and Services, the office first served as a referral center for female students connecting students and staff to resources and events that were off-campus. Over the years, the Center's staff, and the programs they offered, grew to offer new resources for students.

Today we continue to offer an array of programs and services that promote intersectional feminism, social justice, and student leadership. We are centrally located on UC's Clifton Campus in the Steger Student Life Center where we provide a comfortable, informal space for students to meet, talk, and study. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff can answer questions and locate resources that address personal, academic, or work-related concerns. Students can learn about gender equity and build leadership and activism skills through our wide variety of student-centered programs. At the end of the year the Women’s Center celebrates women’s accomplishments and leadership on campus at our annual awards ceremony. 

The Women’s Center is committed to evolving to meet the needs and interests of UC’s women students, staff and faculty.
