Center for Women’s Studies

The Center for Women’s Studies is a multipurpose space where students, faculty, and staff can gather to discuss a multitude of topics spanning the feminist spectrum and consider the intersectionality of identities and various forms of oppression.
The Center for Women's Studies is located in East Hall.

About the Center

Located in East Hall, the Center for Women’s Studies serves as an academic and social space for the Colgate community (campus map).

Each Tuesday afternoon, we host brown bag lunches, bringing together the Colgate community with lectures and presentations on various gender issues. These brown bag lunches encourage discussion and action by community members involving these topics. Check out the campus calendar to keep track of our upcoming events.


Our newly renovated facilities include an open floor plan lounge, a classroom, a seminar room, offices, and a library with a wide array of print resources on women’s studies, gender, sexualities, women’s health, race, and feminist theory. WOMEN'S STUDIES FACILITIES
