The Women’s Center works on many events throughout the year! Be sure to keep up with our website and our social media accounts for updated information about upcoming events.

Language Partners

The focus of the Language Partners program is to assist non-native English speakers with their conversational English, awareness of North American culture and knowledge of living in Columbia, Missouri.

Pairings are determined on a first-come, first-serve basis. We will email you as soon as we have a partner for you. Please note this may take up to a few weeks based on the number of volunteers.

Once you are paired, our Program Coordinator will send an email to you and your partner with each other’s contact information.

Love Your Body

Loving your body means to take care of it, trusting it and respecting it for all it does for you. The Love Your Body campaign works to celebrate that. For more information, visit the campaign’s official website!

The world has created expectations based on our looks, creating a dynamic that places the value of appearance over all else. We are provided with a ‘standard’ of beauty that is non-inclusive, and this leaves anyone who does not fit this ‘standard’ feeling inadequate. Love Your Body Week challenges the message that our value can be measured through the ability to meet any standard of beauty. Loving yourself is not the reality for all or may be intermittent, but we work toward everyone being able to accept their physical body, abilities and identities.

Stitch ‘N Bitch

SNB is a national movement to reclaim historically devalued “women’s work” while having conversations with friends and new acquaintances and creating fabulous fashions! Join our Stitch ‘N Bitch crew from 4 to 6 p.m. every Wednesday in the Women’s Center lounge while classes are in session. 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 Women’s Center staff! If you don’t have the start-up tools, no worries! We have knitting needles and crochet hooks, yarn and patterns.

Coffee Tuesdays

Join us every other Tuesday from 8:30am-10am. We provide free coffee, tea, hot chocolate and delicious breakfast treats! All Mizzou students, faculty and staff are invited to join us and build our community!

Women’s History Month

The University of Missouri celebrates Women’s History Month every March.

Women’s History Month (WHM) at MU is a collaborative effort by the Association of Latin American Students, Chancellor’s Status of Women Committee, Department of Black Studies, Department of Sociology, Department of Women’s and Gender Studies, Division of Inclusion, Diversity and Equity, the Michael A. Middleton Center for Race, Citizenship and Justice and The Bridge in the College of Education and Human Development. Unless otherwise indicated, events are sponsored by the WHM committee. All programs and events are free and open to the public.

We are committed to ensuring our events are accessible and inclusive. Email one week prior to the event if you anticipate barriers to your participation.

Stay tuned for our 2024 calendar!
