Welcome to the Women's Center website. The center houses numerous programs including Violence Prevention and Advocacy Services, The Women's Leadership Coalition Program, Women of Color Network of Faculty and Staff, LBTQQ Group, and Academic Alternative Spring Break. In addition to our programs, we are also a residence to female identified students on campus.
The URI Women's Center works to create an educational and work environment rich in visible role models and free of sexual bias and inequities. By developing and supporting women's abilities and showcasing their talents, the Women's Center assists all University women in reaching their full potential. The URI Women's center works with others in the URI community to provide experience that achieve learning outcomes concerning women's issues.
The URI Women's Center's presence on the Kingston campus is recognized, appreciated, and valued as a precious and integral aspect of the university. Through the Center's programming and services, University women are able to expand their awareness of important women's issues such as diversity, sexual harassment, leadership, women's health and relationships. The Women's Center is a place where all university women (student, faculty, and staff) go for education, support, referrals, and crisis intervention.
