Mission Statement:
The UCSC Womxn’s Center affirms the dignity and diversity of all womxn. The center continues and challenges feminist traditions by creating community space for all womxn and their allies to achieve individual and social change.

Principles: The UCSC Womxn’s Center honors our many historical struggles, fosters discussion of intergenerational and transnational views on feminisms, and promotes open dialogue and activism.

Diversity: In our conscious commitment to diversity at the UCSC Womxn’s Center we examine the complexities of race and ethnicity, genders and sexualities, class, community activism, and feminism. We work to challenge sexism, racism, heterosexism, ableism, ageism, classism, and other barriers that inhibit womxn’s inclusion and power. The Center embodies diversity in its staffing, programs, research and scholarship, community outreach, and transnational links.

Leadership and Development: The UCSC Womxn’s Center encourages women to find their voices and speak our truths, develop leadership skills, initiate and participate in campus ad community activist groups, and share out knowledge and experiences with each other.

Health and Welfare: As health, safety, and well-being are human rights unjustly denied to many, the UCSC Womxn’s Center engages in advocacy and education with the goal of attaining individual and collective health.

Community: The UCSC Womxn’s Center provides space, staff, and resources to encourage womxn’s involvement in all aspects of university life and to establish and deepen connections with the Santa Cruz community and beyond.
