Events and workshops

Our commitment to you

This year, student advocates have committed to ensuring our events center intersectionality and center the needs and experiences of BIPOC, undocumented/DACAmented, transgender and queer women students. We are working to ensure that all events are accessible to any disability and/or trauma-related accommodation.

We have also committed to an interest in discussing food insecurity and food justice work at a majority of our events and planning.

If you are interested in being involved, especially if you identify with these movements, identities and experiences, we are always looking for volunteers!

We hope to see you soon!

Regular programming

Our programming is still in the planning stages for this year. Look back for more details about the following regularly scheduled events soon.

Examples of our upcoming events:
Come rest your head at Returning Women’s Club

Are you coming back to school? Or starting education later in life? Do you feel overwhelmed? Has it been awhile and does the (virtual) classroom sometimes feel out of place? Come empty your head and fill your heart at the Returning Women’s Club.

Alternate Tuesdays from 12noon to 1pm, we meet online to share our experiences, find useful resources, and look for ways to find the magical in the mundane. Maybe we’ll do some creative writing together to get in touch with our deeper selves, or watch a video on a relevant topic, listen to a guest speaker, or just hang out together, amongst ourselves.

Participants are eligible to win a gift card from small black owned local businesses or larger corporations of choice. We’re here. We’re valued. We’re role models. We’re midwifing the future.

Join us for our first meeting this term on: Tuesday April 20th from 12noon to 1pm. Sign up to join us!

What We Were Wearing

November 7, 12:30-4pm, Building 5, Room 122

Come see an exhibit of the outfits that survivors of sexual violence and harassment were wearing at that time along with their anonymous narrative. Help us interrupt the myths that blame survivors. This event is for and includes submissions from people of all genders and sexual orientations. If you would like to submit an outfit/narrative to the event, it will be returned to you after.
