What is the mission of the Women’s Center?

The Women’s Center at UMBC advances gender equity from an intersectional feminist perspective through co-curricular programming, support services, and advocacy for marginalized individuals and communities. We prioritize critical social justice as our community value, with a deliberate focus on women, gender, anti-racism, and feminism.

All are welcome as long as they respect women. Their experiences. Their stories. Their potential.

We have currently suspended our hours of operation and are working remotely to do our part to flatten the curve. For support and resources, contact us at womenscenter@umbc.edu. For up-to-date information about UMBC’s response to COVID-19, please visit covid19.umbc.edu.
