Penn State's Center for Women Students (CWS) is committed to a campus culture that makes all students feel supported and gives students access to a full range of services, fosters cooperation and respect, and creates positive experiences that help students be successful both at Penn State and in the world.
The Center supports students who have been impacted by sexual violence, relationship violence, stalking, harassment, and other campus climate issues. We assist students through education, advocacy, referrals, and crisis intervention/support counseling.
The genesis of the Center for Women Students, which provides a central focus for meeting the needs of all students, began with a recommendation from the Commission for Women in 1983. With President Bryce Jordan's support, as well as others, they identified important University-wide needs for the Center. The center, founded in 1985, works to build a supportive environment for students in the University's classrooms, other campus locations, research centers, and in the community.
