The Women’s Center is the primary organization on campus dedicated to providing education on women’s issues, feminism, healthy masculinities, and gender and social equity.  In addition, we serve as a conduit for many other women’s and social justice organizations, and a site for mentorship and external educational programs.  Our space and programs are available to all individuals of all genders interested in understanding how gender shapes our social world, and how we can work to eliminate all forms of gender-based oppression.


The Women’s Center uses a feminist approach to provide support, advocacy, resources and education to the UCSB community. We value and respect all gender identities and presentations, bodies, sexual expressions, and racial and ethnic identities while challenging all forms of oppression. We work towards creating a campus environment that is safe, equitable, and just.
