About Us

The MU Women’s Center welcomes students, staff, faculty, and members of our local community. The Center provides opportunities for learning, service, and support. Our Center is open to everyone.

The Women’s Center started with a group of dedicated students, faculty and staff, including the Association of Women Students, a women-driven student government similar to the Missouri Students Association (MSA). In 1975, the Women’s Center’s doors first opened in 1 Gentry Hall with Gail Ginder serving as the first Director.

In Fall 1987, the Center moved to 229 Brady Commons, where it resided for 21 years.

In the Fall of 2008, the Women’s Center moved to 214 Memorial Union North during the Brady Commons construction and created the Center for Social Justice.

On Jan. 6, 2011, the center moved to G108 MU Student Center, where Brady Commons once stood.

The Women’s Center continues to provide advising, support and meeting space to student orgs and programs. The center is ever evolving to create safe spaces for all members of our Tiger family. We look forward to making more herstory here at Mizzou.
