Welcome from the Director of WGSE
Welcome to the UC Santa Barbara Women’s Center! The students and staff of the Center encourage you to visit us in the heart of the Student Resource Building, room 1220. For over 40 years, the Women’s Center has served the UCSB community by providing advocacy, education, and networking. Students, faculty, staff, and community members are encouraged to participate in the Women’s Center in various ways, for example, by attending an event, studying in the Center library, or gathering with friends for lunch. The Women’s Center welcomes people of all genders who wish to be part of a community of individuals looking to explore identity, socio-cultural issues, or simply be together. The Women’s Center is designed by and for the UCSB community and you are welcome here!
At the UC Santa Barbara Women’s Center, we envision a world free of oppression and violence. We strive for inclusion and equity through our programs, services, and work. We celebrate the richness of our differences while working collectively to create a community of leaders, scholars, and global citizens for the future.
