Requesting an appointment or programming
Gender Equity Center is committed to providing support and programming to the University community. As we are transitioning back to in-person services from the COVID-19-related precautions, we are offering a variety of options to best serve your needs and safety.

We realize this may be a challenging, uncertain time for many. As a result, we would like to empower you to determine what meeting or programming option is best for you and your needs. While we are now offering in-person appointments and programming, we will continue to offer direct services and outreach and engagement opportunities in a remote format via Zoom or Microsoft Teams as well. Additional options for meeting in-person include in our offices in 204 Boucke or somewhere else at University Park. These options include meeting in a conference room in Boucke, the HUB, your residence hall, or at an outdoor location. In the interest of making our meeting environment as safe as possible for everyone involved, we ask that those who are not fully vaccinated for COVID-19 wear a mask during our meeting.

Please review this website for valuable information about resources and options. For more information, to schedule an appointment, or to connect with staff, email us at, call us at 814-863-2027, or stop in the office at 204 Boucke. Phones are generally staffed from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. In-person office hours are 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. till August 16, 2021, when we return to full in-person hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
