The Women’s Center works on many events throughout the year! Be sure to keep up with our website and our social media for updated information on your favorites!!
Love Your Body is a national movement for body positivity and neutrality. We want everyone to love themselves and we use social media and campus advertising to remind folks of how great they are! The WC collaborates with other offices and organizations to plan and implement events on our campus that everyone is invited to.
SNB is a national movement to reclaim historically devalued ”women’s work” while having radical conversations with friends and new acquaintances and creating fabulous fashions! Join our Stitch ‘N Bitch crew every Wednesday while classes are in session. We meet in the WC Lounge from 4-6 pm. It’s open-house-style, so you can stop in for a bit or stay the full 2 hours! Bring a project you’re working on or learn how to knit or crochet from one of the WC Staffers! Some folks even bring other types of crafting to work on. If you don’t have the start-up tools, no worries! We have knitting needles and crochet hooks, yarn and patterns.
Women’s Leadership Conference
The Women’s Leadership Conference is an event held to coincide with Women’s History Month and is designed to bring female leaders from Mid-Missouri together to discuss the past, present, and future of women’s leadership on a global level. The conference is built upon four pillars: networking, education, empowerment and diversity.
Women’s History Month occurs throughout March. It is a time to rediscover our past and look towards our future. Every year, the Women’s Center along with the Women’s History Month Committee comes together to make sure that women’s stories are heard. Special events that month are our Annual Women’s Poetry Night, Women’s & Gender Studies Wednesdays, the Women’s Leadership Conference and so much more.

Join us every other Tuesday from 8:30am-10am. We provide free coffee, tea, hot chocolate and delicious breakfast treats! This has quickly became a favorite among our staff, faculty, and students. It’s a great time to get together and build our WC community!
