What we do
The Women, Gender, & Sexual Equity Department exists at UCSB to support students, faculty, and staff who might face some challenges due to their identity. We celebrate all identities and encourage people from all identities to get involved. Our department is made up of four distinct program areas: Women’s Center Programs, Rape Prevention Education Program, Non-Traditional Student Resource Center, and LGBT Resources/Resource Center for Sexual & Gender Diversity. Collectively we strive to make UCSB a more welcoming and just place. We encourage you to check out our events each quarter and to join or request a workshop. If you are part of one of the specific communities we are here to serve you. If you want to become an ally to one of the communities we serve, you are also very welcome to get involved and learn more. Feel free to stop by and visit any of our centers.
